Over the past decade, our firm has enjoyed a phenomenal increase in size, national and international presence, reputation, recognition and financial success. We have done so by doing work with distinctive value to our clients on their most critical and challenging matters and by steadily building top-flight practice groups in key strategic areas. Most importantly, we have sought and attracted talented law students and lawyers from all backgrounds who share our passion for excellence and believe in our core values of integrity, teamwork, mutual respect, governing by consensus, mentoring and training, and advancement based solely on ability, performance and contribution to the firm—and who value and enjoy the friendships we quickly make at a firm filled with extraordinary people.
As the many Dechert associates and partners who have contributed a “Lawyer Testimonial” to this web site say over and over, we think Dechert is a pretty special place to start or continue your legal career. As you browse, you will see that we offer wide and tremendous opportunities to do interesting and challenging work for clients from the huge and well-known to the most desperately in need. We are all fortunate to be able to learn every day from renowned lawyers and friends who want to train us quickly and well, and who seek to push as much responsibility in our direction as we can handle. We think the more you learn about us, the more you will want to talk to us about sharing in the excitement of practicing law in a thriving international firm.
