Weil at a Glance
Weil has been a preeminent provider of legal services for over 90 years. Through our innovative “one-Firm” approach, which integrates approximately 1,100 attorneys across offices on three continents, we provide advanced solutions for many of the world’s most successful organizations on matters as complex and interconnected as the businesses themselves. With an entrepreneurial spirit at our core, Weil attorneys bring passion, creativity and optimism to all our work. We don’t ask "how was it done last time," we ask "how can it be done better?" Weil remains at the forefront of innovation in law, working side-by-side with clients as strategic business partners to understand the full picture of their needs wherever they operate. Sophisticated clients require a new type of business lawyering, and we adapted to this model years ago. Our attorneys have pioneered major areas of law, including corporate governance, private equity and restructuring. Talented individuals who want a seat at the table to tackle complex, challenging matters will find ample opportunities to shine at Weil.
Launch a Career
When you join Weil, you are not just getting a job – you are launching a career. Weil’s entrepreneurial culture and meritocracy provide ample opportunities for attorneys to gain substantive experience and advance more quickly than they would elsewhere. Weil associates are given the opportunity to work with an impressive roster of clients early in their career, developing marketable skills as a business lawyer in the digital age. Our award winning training and professional development programs afford foundational tools that are an asset regardless of where one’s career may go.
Be an Outstanding Corporate Citizen
Our constant questioning of, “how can it be done better?” is not limited to the boardroom and courtroom. We seek to stay ahead of the pack on issues of corporate social responsibility, diversity and wellness. Giving back through pro bono service, charitable donations and the provision of non-legal services to the community is deeply engrained in Weil’s culture. All Weil attorneys are asked to perform at least 50 hours of pro bono work each year. Weil is home to six affinity groups – AsianAttorneys@Weil, Black Lawyers Achieving Success Together, WeilLatinx, WeilPride, Women@Weil and WeilVets – that focus on recruiting, supporting and retaining diverse attorneys. We know this work is never done and are always looking to improve, both at Weil and in the legal industry as a whole.
