Be part of a dynamic, global community

High-quality opportunities 

Our geographic reach and cross-practice capabilities are top notch. We’re constantly in touch across the firm, and seeking new opportunities. That allows us to participate in more sophisticated and novel transactions. At the same time, it makes what we do more fun. 

I came here as a lateral, right after the merger between Hogan & Hartson and Lovells. I knew I was coming to one of the market's leading firms, with incredible global reach and a collegiate environment. I found an excellent group of people who are a pleasure to work with. No matter what level you’re entering at, this is a great firm. Just always be open to learning.

Consistently high quality

I’m a member of the Financial Services practice, working on international debt capital markets, including general financing and bond issuance work. I concentrate on Latin America, and we have an amazing network of offices and professionals around this geographical focus. 

Advising clients in a way that allows them to get the deal done is the backbone of everything we do. Email correspondence, conference calls, and in-person meetings are a big part of that, and I always try to answer any communications as soon as possible. Clients value that, and we encourage being able to respond swiftly to any communications, even if it’s just to say that we’ll further review a topic later that day.

Deep relationships

I’ve been working with the same two great partners for seven years now. We have a great relationship, and I’ve learned tons from them. Someday, I hope to have that kind of relationship with some of my more junior colleagues. I’d like to see them succeed in life and their profession. Team culture is highly valued here. We really trust and support each other all the time. It’s one of our main assets, and we work to keep it that way.
