About the Firm

Associate Reviews


  • “I chose to come to O'Melveny because I repeatedly and consistently heard that the firm had a friendly and collegial culture, and that associates were generally happy to work there. I have found that to be completely true. It has been difficult to socialize frequently during the pandemic, but the firm has made a lot of efforts to forge connections between employees at the firm, both virtually and in person. The day-to-day atmosphere is so friendly, and I have found all of the counsel and partners I work with to be very approachable.”
  • “Culture is highly collaborative, social, and accepting. The partners prioritize a good working environment and prioritize associate satisfaction.”
  • “I stand by this statement: OMM has the best culture. Every partner, counsel, associate, and staff truly care for one another and never expect anyone to pull all-nighters. Any request for help is always polite and everyone is understanding if you can't take additional work on. We work with prestigious clients and companies and are exposed to news-worthy deals. Our firm makes great efforts to plan events for socializing and our attorneys are all very involved in the social aspect of our firm.”

Getting Hired Here


  • “The firm considers law school attended, academic performance, journal experience, clerkships, prior work experience, personality, diversity, and more.”
  • “The firm strongly considers grades in hiring and I believe there is a lot of emphasis on the interview process. There is a lot of focus on the firm culture, the ‘team player’ model, and generally finding employees who fit the culture and personality of the firm. There are feeder schools from which the firm almost always hires. There is a lot of training for interviewers to follow, which is helpful, but it's still a very subjective process.”
  • “I have participated in interviewing and recruitment calls for several summer and regular associates, and my sense is that the firm and individual attorneys are extremely committed to bringing in attorneys who will mesh with OMM's friendly and collegial culture.”
