Our Los Angeles office is energetic, exciting and on the cutting edge when it comes to performing some of today’s most relevant and newsworthy legal work. The work here is fulfilling and challenging, involving pan-office and multijurisdictional issues. You will meet—on the phone and in person—clients located on just about every continent. In serving these clients, you will work hand in hand with our lawyers throughout our network of offices worldwide. As our case and deal teams are staffed efficiently, you will get substantial experience early in your career writing motions, drafting documents, taking and defending depositions, talking with clients, participating in closings and even going to court to make an argument. Your learning curve will be steep, and the experience will be great. And you will have mentors and professional development programs to guide you along the way.
