Our Lawyer Stories

Cari Gallman, Alumna
"Debevoise handles high-stakes litigation matters and cases that shape the law. Even as a junior associate, you get hands-on experience in building the case. And the substantive knowledge and know-how that Debevoise partners impart to associates is just amazing. You’re trained in how to think through problems and look for creative solutions. That’s a critical skill set for any litigator and it’s something you get very good at very quickly as a Debevoise associate. It’s also what I do every day as senior in-house counsel. And at Debevoise, diversity isn’t just talk. The firm dedicates significant resources to recruiting and retaining lawyers from diverse backgrounds. But it isn’t only a matter of financial resources or large-scale initiatives. Individual lawyers were invested in my experience and that of other diverse associates."
