Change is a given. We’re staying ahead of it.

When we say no two days here are the same, we mean it. Every day brings something new because every day the world changes a little more. To stay ahead, we need to anticipate what’s next. There are new technologies, new medicines, and new ways to keep the planet green. Our 2,800+ lawyers are part of that thinking. We help clients move, adapt, and invent what lies ahead. We work together, across our global network, to provide practical legal solutions for corporations, financial institutions, and governments.

But how does that make us different from other firms? Well, it’s our dynamic spirit that hits you from the get-go. The feeling of trust and of sharing knowledge to help us all power forward. The deep relationships we forge with clients, and with each other, to create a community that buzzes with promise. A community where, above all, you can always be yourself.

A common mindset

Collegiality is not just a goal – it’s how we operate every day. We’re straight talkers here – upfront, honest, and ready to share information. We’re known for strong associate-partner relationships and early client contact. That means you’ll have a chance to learn and grow while making a meaningful contribution to our collective success. We recruit smart, well-rounded candidates who want to maximize their professional potential, and who share our commitment to client service and community involvement

Deep relationships

Diversity and inclusion are at the core of who we are and how we do business. We attract and retain the best and the brightest, and build teams of people with different perspectives and life experiences. Our clients see us as an extension of their team because we’re able to put ourselves in their shoes at every turn. Coming together from all backgrounds, we thrive on making a positive impact. And naturally, we value and support the voices and worldviews that help us get there.

High-quality opportunities

The strength of our global platform and network of people opens up new perspectives and potential opportunities. You’ll find a variety of interesting and prestigious work across many sectors here. Whether you’re at the start of your career or in the middle of one, you’ll have the chance to mold and establish your own reputation.

Consistently high standards

Be bold. You’ll have our support. We want you to put your suggestions and ideas forward. Among colleagues, you’ll be respected for what you can bring. Together, we’ll challenge traditional ways of thinking and operating as well as create new ones. Wherever we are in the world, we apply our collective knowledge practically, constructively, and collaboratively. It’s a sharing economy.

Professional reach

With nearly 50 offices around the world and over a dozen in the U.S. alone, you’ll be part of a vibrant network. You’ll make new connections, contribute to innovative ideas, and open up your prospects. Whether locally, nationally, or across the globe, there’s no limit to the opportunities that will present themselves. Speaking of opportunities, we believe everyone should have a chance to work in the way that best suits their lifestyle – which is why we build flexibility into how we work. Our agile way of working incorporates both time and location, dependent on the needs of our clients and the firm.

Personal growth

Whether you’re new to the industry or more experienced, through HL Learn we offer a range of training and development opportunities to broaden your skills, grow your networks, and build a sense of camaraderie across offices. Beyond the formal training, the quality of work you receive from the start will accelerate your development and help you build on your strengths.

There’s also Pathways, our development-focused program, driven by you. It provides for frequent, actionable feedback – from anyone at the firm – and is centered on your career development and growth, including open discussion about the paths your career may take.

Inspiring action. Changing lives.

Everyone deserves access to justice. We provide it to those who need it most. Our U.S. lawyers dedicate more than 100,000 hours annually to bring about change – from assisting families who have been devastated by natural disasters to representing those fleeing persecution and violence in their home countries. We contribute our legal skills to help the wrongfully convicted, the homeless and marginalized, victims of human trafficking, and other underserved populations.

We were the first law firm to establish a free-standing Pro Bono department – almost 50 years ago. You could say pro bono is in our DNA.
