dcsimg Careers


McGuireWoods’ reputation is built one lawyer and one client at a time. We offer the opportunity to grow through an extensive range of legal practice areas and industries, and to work in locations around the world. Because we focus on aligning our services with client-specific objectives, we also seek lawyers with business experience. Perhaps the most attractive aspect of joining our firm is the opportunity to work with our lawyers and leaders, all of whom reflect the value McGuireWoods places on experience, talent and diversity.

Lateral Hiring

For nearly two centuries, McGuireWoods has expanded its presence and enhanced its capabilities to keep pace with our clients’ needs — both in the United States and in the global marketplace. Today we have more than 1,000 lawyers in 21 offices in the United States, United Kingdom, Brussels and elsewhere in Europe. We do business where our clients do business. We are strong in the traditional legal practices such as litigation and corporate law, but we are also leaders in rapidly expanding fields such as data privacy and security, the life sciences, private equity, and healthcare, among many others.

Law Student Hiring

McGuireWoods is a rewarding place to launch a career. We are a sophisticated international law firm with a culture that values excellence, client service, integrity, collegiality and community. Vault Law 100 (2012) ranked our firm as one of the “most prestigious” firms in the world.

Staff Careers 

Staff members play an essential role in helping us serve our clients promptly, efficiently and professionally. Opportunities to grow in knowledge, experience and business acumen define a McGuireWoods’ career.
