Our success is the result of the quality of our lawyers, the most broadly and deeply trained collection of attorneys in the world. We'd like you to be part of our storyâ€¦
We hire the very best graduates and train them to be generalists within broad practice areas. We promote our lawyers to partner almost entirely from among our own associates. The result is a partnership with a unique diversity of experience, exceptional professional judgment and a demonstrated history of innovation.
