Our Lawyer Stories

"Debevoise has a culture that is inclusive, from the most senior partner to the junior associates and paralegals, and that’s really special. It’s about getting the work done for our clients and it’s about your team. Partners are always willing to take the time to talk and offer guidance on how to approach an assignment. It’s a given that everyone pitches in and puts the client and the work product first. I enjoy working with colleagues who take an interest in helping our clients by helping each other. And I’ve been given far more responsibility than I could have expected as a junior associate. As a first-year, I drafted talking points for a call with government lawyers in connection with a white collar investigation because the partner recognized that I knew the documents and facts of the case inside and out. There’s a level of trust in that, and it shows in the assignments I get to work on."
