Working at White & Case will launch, accelerate and build your career, opening doors and relationships around the world.
We are a truly global firm, with an international network that most firms can only dream of. It’s the reason many of our global clients choose to work with us, and why they trust us with their most challenging and complex cross-border matters. As an associate, this means you will be an integral member of the teams that span the entirety of a matter—not just the work in one jurisdiction—and experience the international nature of the work.
Our associates work as part of a team of global citizens in a fast-paced, collaborative environment. Lawyers who join our Firm find themselves part of an open, collegial culture where innovation, teamwork and entrepreneurial spirit are valued. This open-door approach fosters strong working relationships across our 44 offices worldwide. From day one, our lawyers find that they do intellectually challenging work on complex and innovative deals and cases with talented colleagues from all over the globe, each committed to becoming the best at what they do and committed to the success of the team. Driven by our culture of apprenticeship, we train and guide our associates to succeed in every aspect of their career development.
Our clients include two-thirds of the Global Fortune 100 and half the Fortune 500, as well as start-up visionaries, governments and state-owned entities. We are proud of our achievements—revenue of more than US$1.8 billion, 43 practices rated Band 1 in Chambers Global, top ranked for diversity and pro bono programs—but we will not rest on our laurels. In 2015, we launched an ambitious five-year growth strategy that will strengthen our position as a top-of-mind firm for global clients—and an employer of choice for top talent.
This combination of strength and ambition means exciting career opportunities: international and cutting-edge work throughout your career, and experience that will benefit you wherever your career journey takes you.
