Why Work Here

You deserve more from your legal practice than a paycheck and a lock-step march to partnership. Meaningful work that challenges and excites you. Mentors eager to help you grow. Freedom to seek a balance between your work and home life. The opportunity to serve your community in a way that suits your interests and values. A collegial environment filled with people you look forward to seeing each day. And a true commitment to diversity and community service.

We invite you to explore Womble Carlyle and see if our firm may be a good match for your career goals. Some specifics about Womble Carlyle include:

  1. Clients among the Corporate Elite Doing Business in the Middle Market. Clients with annual revenues $50 million-$2 billion are our sweet spot. These types of clients give our lawyers the chance to do high-level legal work, while also developing strong, trusted attorney-client relationships.
  2. Great Buzz from the Clients We Serve. Sample client comments: “As good as a New York firm, but much more cost-effective.” “Not just good lawyers but good people too.” “They’re excellent negotiators…and they watch the bottom line.”
  3. Our Clients Love Our Value Story. We know they want more for their dollar. So we embrace client-focused alternatives to the billable hour. Firm clients regularly enjoy flat fees, performance incentives and other strategies to better share risks.
  4. An Upward Trajectory of Strategic Growth. Womble Carlyle is a growing law firm, both in bench strength and geographic scope. We currently have approximately 530 attorneys in 15 offices throughout the Southeast, Mid-Atlantic and Silicon Valley—and we are looking to grow (smartly).
  5. The Profession’s Most Progressive Client Development Program, including a widely recognized law firm brand image and full-time sales directors ready to help you target, win and expand your business.
  6. Innovation That Keeps Your Practice Ahead of the Game. In the past two years, both Womble Carlyle’s Case Management Facility and our Impact Economy practice have been recognized in the Financial Times Innovative Lawyers Report.
  7. An Entrepreneurial Spirit. Be the kind of lawyer you strive to become. No one here will get in your way. In fact, we’ll give you every resource you need to succeed.
  8. A Chance to Work with Top Talent. Our attorneys have backgrounds in state and federal agencies, private industry, academia and leading legal organizations.
  9. An Open and Inclusive Workplace. Our commitment to diversity is visible in our scholarship program for diverse law students and our perfect score on the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index. We value gender diversity, too—Womble Carlyle’s three top leaders all are women, including Chair & CEO Betty Temple. View our Diversity team here.
