For our young lawyers, Davis Polk offers a coveted opportunity to work and learn at one of the top firms in the world. We offer strength and depth across the board, in all our practices and in every office worldwide. For our industry-leading clients, this allows us to respond with excellence to whatever demands, opportunities and issues they face. For our lawyers, it means a full spectrum of rewarding career paths to explore, outstanding global opportunities and the ability to make a lasting impact on the business matters that shape the world’s economy.
Our lawyers are remarkably diverse – not only in terms of gender and ethnicity, but in place of origin, language, educational background, nonlegal expertise, and interests and experience outside of the law. They are encouraged to pursue wide-ranging interests and fully develop their exceptional talents. Davis Polk lawyers excel in the practice of law. Most also devote their time to pro bono work and community service.
We provide meaningful opportunities for advancement within the firm and an invaluable foundation of knowledge, experience and contacts that supports our lawyers throughout their careers, whether at Davis Polk or beyond. We also maintain close links to our alumni, many of whom go on to become leaders in business, government, public service and education.
The foundation of our culture is respect and collaboration. We put our people first, and our people put our clients first. It is a long-standing approach – one that continues to be a formula for success.
