Making a career change is a big deal.

Joining Our Team – Joining as a lateral

Whether you come to Orrick from another law firm, an in-house position, a clerkship or a public service role, you’ll find a team that values your experience and perspective.

We’ll help you connect with peers and mentors and ensure you are integrated into client teams where you can leverage your background. Support is available through our training and mentoring programs, retreats, shadowing, coaching and more.

A lot of us came from someplace else. We take great pride in the fact that we work as one team. You won’t feel like a newbie for long.
