The AllAboutLaw Perspective

Working at Debevoise & Plimpton means high-quality, rewarding work in a US firm with strong roots in the UK. The office is home to strong and growing teams focusing on everything from high-stakes international arbitration to major cross-border M&A. From Day One at the firm, lawyers have a chance to work on international, challenging, and rewarding cases, including a number of pro-bono cases, which is central to the firm's culture. The firm is distinctly international, with offices in the US, Europe, and Asia. With a number of dual-qualified partners, trainees have multiple opportunities to learn in a thriving atmosphere.

The firm is also committed to diversity, consistently earning 100% rankings in the Corporate Equality Index, recognised for their non-discrimination policies, equitable benefits for LGBTQ employees, inclusive firm culture, and corporate social responsibility. The firm also has a platform named ‘Debevoise Women’s Review’, a first of its kind, which is developed to inspire the legal and business communities to engage in discussion and collective action around gender diversity.

Some of the perks of a flexible training program at Debevoise & Plimpton include only one mandatory seat in Litigation/Arbitration and opportunities to spend time in their other international offices. Second-year trainees also complete a 3-week business and finance education program (mini-MBA) at Columbia Business School in New York. The firm is also a ‘lockstep’ firm, which means that all lawyers receive the same remuneration according to their class year. This helps the firm to create a culture of teamwork and collegiality and enables them to prioritise client interests instead of creating competition between colleagues.
