Lawyers and Judicial Clerks: Making the Move to O'Melveny
How will you choose the law firm where you will practice? Its geography? The reputation of its attorneys? The quality of its work? Its commitment to public service?
At O'Melveny, we provide opportunities for the best and brightest lawyers to do the most sophisticated and exciting legal work available. From private equity transactions in New York to antitrust litigation in Tokyo, from high-technology work in Silicon Valley to constitutional litigation in the US Supreme Court, our practice spans the globe and, at the same time, helps our local communities.
We are committed to uncompromising excellence in our legal work. The American Lawyer has repeatedly recognized ours as one of the best litigation departments in the United States (we are one of only two firms to have won The American Lawyer’s Litigation Department of the Year or been a finalist or honorable mention in every contest since the award’s inception), and we are regularly named one of America’s best corporate law firms in Corporate Board Member’s annual survey of US corporate directors. These and other awards reflect the quality of our lawyers, who benefit from one of the most innovative talent development programs to be found in any law firm. Our clients recognize as much. As an attorney at Ford Motor Company told The American Lawyer, "O'Melveny is the most talented firm overall I've dealt with in 25 years as a lawyer for Ford."
For generations, O'Melveny has provided distinctive leadership to the profession, our local communities, and the nation. We count among our colleagues a former Secretary of Transportation, a former White House Counsel, a former Solicitor General, a former FTC Chairman, and other lawyers who have left their marks in the history books. The rising generation carries on these traditions, providing leadership to the American Constitution Society, the Federalist Society, the American Law Institute, and similar organizations.
What matters most is that O'Melveny offers a rewarding career, top-tier work, and a supportive team of talented people with whom you'll actually enjoy working. We're looking for bright, personable individuals with creative ideas and a strong desire to learn and excel. If you fit that description, we invite you to consider joining us.
