I sincerely appreciate your consideration of me as a potential new attorney at Black & Moore. I am well aware of the terrific reputation your firm enjoys as a leader in the area of patent law. I have always been highly impressed by the work your attorneys consistently produce in representing your clients.
Although I believe Black & Moore is a terrific firm, I must unfortunately decline your offer of an interview. After submitting my resume to your firm, I was contacted by Stinson & Jones who extended an offer to me to join as an associate. After careful consideration, I decided to accept it and signed a contract.
As soon as I made the decision to accept Stinson & Jones’s offer, I immediately notified your firm via telephone. Because I have so much respect for the work you do, I wanted to follow up with a letter. I want to sincerely convey my thanks for your consideration of my candidacy.
I am certain you have many talented attorneys vying to work for your firm. I have no doubt you will find a top candidate who will work well for you. Again, I thank you and wish your firm the best.
