Whilst this elite New York law firm has something of a reputation for being highly conservative, it also enjoys a standing as being one of the most friendly and collegiate places to work in law. The firm is known for the tensile strength of its partnership and stellar quality of its lawyers; It likes to make home grown partners and only hires lawyers if it thinks this is a realistic possibility. Because of its exacting standards it is a hard place to join but, once in, lawyers are immune from redundancies, artificial performance reviews, and cross-fire from alterations in the partnership structure which increasingly seem to trouble other international law firms.

In London the quality of legal work undertaken is second to none and whether it is M&A, equity capital markets or private equity, the firm always works on the most complex high value matters. Its lawyers tend to be less compartmentalised into strict legal disciplines than at, say, magic circle law firms and the firm considers this ability to undertake a mix of matters a considerable strength and encourages its lawyers to blend corporate with some aspects of finance so as to gain cognisance of the value of hybridisation on truly bespoke high-end matters.

The firm would like to hire an additional “superstar” corporate or equity capital markets lawyer to whom it offers the most varied high-end work in London together with a good shot as one of the most highly prized law firm partnerships in the world. Needless to say the firm will pay you market leading compensation.
