Who We Are Looking For

We believe in hiring talented people and working with them to help them pursue their goals. We think happy lawyers make the best lawyers. We expect you to devote extraordinary effort to your own development and loyalty to the clients we serve.

The Work

Our commercially savvy lawyers regularly lead strategic transactions and complex disputes for world-class clients. We handle some of the most prominent and cutting-edge corporate transactions, both nationally and globally, providing sophisticated advice in a broad range of disciplines. On the litigation side, we were named The American Lawyer’s “Litigation Department of the Year” in 2014 for having demonstrated the most impressive litigation accomplishments of any U.S.-based law firm over the previous two years. The Tax Group is an important part of our worldwide corporate practice, and in 2014 was named “Tax Department of the Year” by Chambers USA. In each of our practices, we regularly advise clients on many of their most complex and significant matters internationally.

This mighty New Yorker continues to impress juniors with its courteous culture and “inspiring” approach to female diversity.
