Snell & Wilmer’s Phoenix office seeks an associate with three to five years of experience to join the Real Estate practice group. Significant experience in due diligence, drafting, negotiating, and closing real estate purchase and lease transactions is expected. Strong academic skills and the ability to work in a team environment is required. Arizona Bar, or the ability to become admitted to the Arizona bar required.

Snell & Wilmer traces its origins to 1938, when Mark Wilmer joined Frank L. Snell, Jr., Riney Salmon, and Charles Strouss, who had practiced together since 1934. Mr. Snell frequently recounted the search that led to his partnership with Mr. Wilmer. Because Mr. Snell was "snowed under" by work and needed help, he consulted the three members of Maricopa County's Superior Court to identify the best trial lawyer in the state. Mr. Snell noted that each judge mentioned Mr. Wilmer, whom he had not yet met.

Both Mr. Snell and Mr. Wilmer recalled their first conversation as a lengthy discussion about their philosophies of the practice of law. The conversation went so well that the two attorneys decided to become partners without working out financial terms. We have been "doing business in Arizona" ever since.
