Why O’Melveny? Because our culture, our collaborative environment, and our commitment to our communities all add up to a singular experience for the talented, ambitious, and values-driven.

Our culture thrives on transparency, inclusion, and innovation. Our “One O’Melveny” approach fosters free-flowing feedback and honest conversations. Through dedicated work advisors, formal and informal mentors, and robust training, we help you achieve your professional aspirations. Through a wide range of engagement opportunities, including committees and employee networks, we help you create your professional community. The O’Melveny experience nurtures legal and civic leaders. As we say often at the firm, it’s not just about what you want to achieve, but how you want to achieve it.

Our collaborative environment embraces diversity and encourages innovation. We work together to drive groundbreaking deals, win precedent-setting cases, and develop solutions that put us at the forefront of technology and client service. While we regularly win awards for our notable outcomes and forward-thinking approaches, our greatest satisfaction comes from helping clients and colleagues find new ways to solve problems and reach their objectives.

Our commitment to our communities is broad in scope. An intrinsic and deep-rooted dedication to pro bono and community service drives us to do better, be better, and make the world better. At O’Melveny every pro bono hour = a billable hour; that’s how important it is. Our dedication to service extends beyond legal work to giving, mentoring, and leading, wherever our help is needed most. We are also committed to our alumni community—our ambassadors to the world. Our alumni carry O’Melveny with them when they move on to join clients, enter public service, or take on other important roles. Many choose to eventually return, bringing back heightened experience and perspective.
