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 2018, 54 new partners joined White & Case and 31 Firm lawyers were promoted, resulting in a total of 85 new partners.
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.
Within my first week at White & Case I was given a senior role on a complex multimillion-dollar construction dispute, working with my new colleagues based in our Middle East and Asia offices.
The complexity of the work at White & Case challenges and inspires me to push my boundaries - ultimately making me a better lawyer.
