About Davis Wright Tremaine LLP
In many ways, we look a lot like most other AmLaw 100 firms. We have smart, well-trained lawyers. We care about our clients and want them to succeed. We can offer niche expertise or deep teams, depending on the nature of your legal needs. Indeed, we "represent clients from start-ups to Fortune 100 companies on the full range of…" (see pretty much every other AmLaw100 firm website).
But you probably came to this page because you want to know what makes us different. The main thing is, we know that great clients and colleagues have lots of options, and we want to be an easy and obvious choice for them. So we’re open to looking for ways to meet their needs, as opposed to finding reasons we can’t. If you are a prospective client or colleague, we won’t take you for granted or forget who works for whom. We’re a place dedicated to your success.
We’re open to you building a career that works for clients and the firm, and that is also personally fulfilling and will keep you energized and inspired. And we’re open to you contributing to the firm in meaningful ways early in your career. In fact, we expect it.
Many of the firm’s most successful practices were built by younger lawyers, ...who had the vision to see how they could combine their passion with the firm’s strengths, and the ambition to turn that vision into a compelling offering for clients. Our firm leadership comes from all areas. About half of our practice group chairs are in the 30s and 40s, as are many members of our executive committee.
We have ranked among Working Mother’s “50 Best Law Firms for Women” for five straight years, and been named “Gold Standard” by the Women In Law Empowerment Forum for eight. And we’ve received a perfect score from the Human Rights Campaign six years running.
