Our Work

Building on a global platform

At White & Case, our geographic investments, client roster and practice/industry concentrations demonstrate our international standing. You’ll work alongside outstanding colleagues on substantive projects that include both cross-border and local matters, and benefit from a culture receptive to new ideas and innovation.

 

Align your career with a growing firm

We’re strategically committed to substantial growth between now and 2020, including the addition of 600 lawyers in New York and London alone. This targeted expansion means more opportunities for both signature client work and career advancement. In 2016, we announced 61 new partners, 31 of them promoted internally.

Since joining White & Case, this experience has shown me the value of working in international teams and bringing global perspective and expertise to the provision of client advice.
