As world markets have opened and our clients have globalized, the geographic scope of our work has expanded. So, too, has the footprint of our firm, growing to 18 offices around the world. Our lawyers now work on matters in more than 160 countries across six continents, with ten offices outside the U.S.


We do not currently have a formal internship programme in place for our international offices, but we may consider applications from qualified applicants for internship positions on a case-by-case basis.
