About the Firm

Associate Reviews


  • “My colleagues genuinely love spending time with each other and there is a sense of camaraderie that is not always present in the BigLaw firm setting. With the recent shift to work from the office, there have been many  formal and informal gatherings to give us an opportunity to get to know each other beyond the bounds of work.”
  • “Lawyers socialize together almost weekly. Day-to-day is warm and inviting. Most attorneys have their doors open during the week and the environment is friendly. Lawyers and staff generally interact well, too, including lunches and weekly activities like ice cream socials.”
  • “People who take their work seriously but not themselves seriously.”
  • “I find that nearly everyone I have worked with has been helpful, intellectually curious, tends to be on the progressive side, and genuinely interested in the work they do. Social interactions are in a state of transition right now, with back to the office underway, but they have generally been a good mix of informal in-office or chat interactions, as well as a variety of lunches, happy hours, and other events that are much more frequent than at the previous firm I worked for.”

Diversity at Weil

"Inclusion is in our DNA. Since its founding, Weil has held diversity and inclusion as a core value of our firm since Frank Weil, Sylvan Gotshal and Horace Manges found many doors closed to them because of their religious beliefs. Over the following 85 years, as we have become a global firm, these principles have been a cornerstone for our growth and success. Our pioneering attitude towards diversity led us to embark on a series of "firsts" for the legal profession from conducting a diversity assessment in 1992 to creating a formal..."

Getting Hired Here


  • “The firm's hiring process is comparable to most other BigLaw firms. First-round interviews usually occur at on-campus interview programs, though some of the specialized groups field these interviews at special programs throughout the country. Aside from the usual qualifications—journal participation, moot court, etc.—the firm is looking for people with a good work ethic, team players, and people who will be passionate about their practice area. There are a good number of first-years from T14 schools, but the firm is by no means exclusive. Roughly a quarter to a third of associates are high-achieving students at local/regional law schools (New York-based, California-based, etc.).” 
  • “Looking for associates who bring energy to the practice. Willing to reward hard work. Not stuck-up about status.”
  • “Very competitive. Typically only interview at T14 schools or top candidates from NY-based regional schools.”
