In Their Own Words

“As a member of Information Services, we support the firm’s technology and information management needs. The work we do is incredibly challenging and interesting. When I joined the firm, I was surprised at how collegial and stress-free the work environment was despite how fast-paced the firm can be. The firm has a culture of understanding and mutual respect amongst lawyers and staff. We all work together to accomplish the firm’s goals and to service our clients. We work hard in the office, but we also recognize the importance of taking time for life outside the firm and for community service. New employees should take advantage of the staff mentoring program and invest time in meeting people at all levels of the organization. Everyone is always approachable and willing to help.”
“The best thing about working at WilmerHale is the friendships that I’ve made over the years. Spending the day with coworkers who are also friends makes for a pleasant work environment and makes it really easy to collaborate on various matters and constantly learn from each other. I also really enjoy the experience of working across offices on different deal teams. Having the additional support of colleagues in various geographic locations is logistically helpful and has helped me grow in my position as a paralegal by learning from other people’s perspectives and experience.”
