We are proud to be a firm that is filled with talented lawyers and extraordinary people who like and respect each other and enjoy working together. We value openness and communication and make important decisions by building consensus, honoring our tradition of participatory governance. Integrity and honesty are at the heart of our practice, both in our work for clients and with each other.
We are committed to providing the highest quality professional work, guided by the needs of our clients. We seek work that is challenging, complex, important, and of distinctive value to our clients, and thrive on the individual and collaborative efforts that are essential to producing excellent results in all of our representations.
It is one of our core values to strive constantly to build a firm that is stronger than it was when we joined, and will be stronger in the future than it is today. We are committed to attracting a diverse group of the most talented law students and lawyers from all sources, regardless of background. We seek to hire men and women with sharp minds, a passion for learning and a strong desire to develop as professionals. We want every lawyer at the firm to feel welcome, and we want every lawyer at the firm to have an equal opportunity to excel.
We hope that all of our lawyers will take advantage of the many opportunities we have to offer for a rewarding legal career, and will find and establish a career at the firm that is both professionally and personally rewarding. We are dedicated to mentoring and developing all of our lawyers and to advancing them based solely on their ability, performance and contribution to the firm’s success, and their own dedication to realizing their full potential.
We believe that client service is at the heart of a productive and rewarding career. We also encourage all of our lawyers to get involved in firm-building activities, which many of us find personally rewarding as well. We encourage, recognize and honor the work that our lawyers undertake in the public interest, and are very proud of our pro bono program.
Our offices are fully integrated and we often work together across offices, continents and oceans, operating as one firm worldwide. This allows us to leverage the most talented team of lawyers to solve our clients’ most challenging and complex issues, regardless of geographic location.
