About Us

One of the greatest strengths of Debevoise & Plimpton is its community. The fundamental values of the firm articulate the importance of "cohesiveness and collegiality within the firm, founded in the character of those we select as partners, counsel, associates and staff and in fundamental principles of fairness and cooperation" with "an emphasis on the success of the firm as a whole."

Debevoise is committed to creating a work environment that values each individual's contributions to our community. We recognize that we must work together every day to respect the different backgrounds, perspectives and experiences of people at the firm and to support our colleagues so they have the ability to develop to their full potential. These values are a foundation of our firm and strengthen our ability to work together as a team so that we can provide our clients with the best legal services available.

Debevoise is committed to promoting the diversity of our community. This commitment stems naturally from the values that shape our firm. To continue to flourish, our firm will strive to recruit and develop the finest talent of all backgrounds and beliefs. Our ability to respond to the needs of our clients, in an increasingly open and global environment, requires that the members of our community have a broad range of skills and experiences. The firm's commitment to diversity furthers these goals.
