At McGuireWoods, you can expect a level of collegiality and professional excellence that is rare at most law firms. Our associates, partners and professional staff experience a diverse and challenging work culture, and the opportunity to excel in one of the world’s most sought-after law firms.

A thriving, full-service firm, McGuireWoods has 1,100 lawyers in 21 offices worldwide. Over our 190-year history, we have earned our clients’ loyalty with deep and broad legal expertise, a passion for understanding their businesses and markets, innovative delivery of business-minded solutions and unmatched client service.

Many of the firm’s practices enjoy nationwide recognition and consistently are ranked among the industry elite by Chambers and Partners, Legal 500 and BTI Consulting Group, among others. Our worldwide presence has grown with the addition of three Texas offices in 2011 and 2014, a second Los Angeles office in 2015, and a San Francisco office the following year. Also in 2016, we formed a strategic alliance with Shanghai firm FuJae Partners. We can augment our legal services with public affairs expertise through our highly regarded affiliate, McGuireWoods Consulting.

McGuireWoods dedicates substantial resources to supporting new lawyers and integrating lateral attorneys and their clients into the firm. For students, our summer programs offer individual training and experience working directly with our lawyers, while on-campus interviews connect recruiters with potential employees. For new associates and professional staff, a McGuireWoods career offers a healthy work-life balance, competitive salaries and full benefits, and a rich culture built on our deep commitment to diversity and inclusion.

Our departments, industry groups, client teams, offices and committees provide ample opportunity for lawyers to help drive the firm’s success and shape its future. Our attorneys benefit from cutting-edge technology support, marketing and business development, professional development, financial analysis and knowledge management. We also enrich our local communities through volunteerism, fundraising, scholarships, sponsorships and a thriving pro bono program.

Our lawyers are McGuireWoods’ most valuable resource, and incorporating lateral associates and partners only strengthens our legal teams. In recent years, the firm has welcomed into its ranks leading international lawyers and recent corporate counsel, former state and U.S. prosecutors and agency officials, and former U.S. Supreme Court clerks.
