Staff & Paralegal Job Opportunities

Staff and paralegals help us innovate, make an impact and deliver exceptional client service.

  • Staff and paralegals bring vital talents to our 27 offices in the U.S., Europe and Asia.

  • They collaborate with lawyers on cases and deals and bring diverse employment and academic backgrounds.

  • Our largest staff team helps power the Global Operations & Innovation Center in Wheeling, West Virginia, the first center of its kind at a U.S.-based law firm.

For many roles, we focus less on whether you’ve worked in a law firm and more on your commitment to innovating, thinking creatively and providing exceptional client service.

We offer comprehensive health and wellbeing benefits for the whole family, including 16 weeks off for staff and lawyers who are new parents (more for those who give birth) plus generous time-off and retirement plans.

Fortune ranks Orrick as one of the 100 Best Companies to Work For. Financial Times consistently has named us a Top 3 Most Innovative Law Firm.

Digital transformation and innovation teams equip staff with the latest technology and processes.

Paralegals work on sophisticated platforms like Orrick CaseStream, a customized case-management system that helps us manage complex litigation, and MAPE 2.0, a blend of interconnected tech tools, new roles, workflow and process changes that helps us better serve clients in mergers and acquisitions.

We emphasize teamwork, innovate in everything we do and view leadership as making the people around you better.

Discover flexibility, training and access to the best tech in an unstuffy, inclusive culture that stresses collaboration and respect.

Thrive on teamwork? Got some grit? Want to make an impact? Let’s talk.
