Shearman And Sterling

A World of Opportunity Awaits You

Welcome to Shearman & Sterling. Our core values of excellence, integrity, client focus, teamwork, energy and diversity are present in everything we do.


You may find yourself working in New York, Hong Kong or London, helping to close a cross-border merger or collaborating on an international restructuring. We believe there are few places where a lawyer or professional can gain such rich experience across practices, industries and continents.


Our global practice is built on a tradition of exceptional knowledge in a diverse and dynamic environment. We owe our success to the skills, versatility and commitment of our people. Because we place a strong emphasis on professional growth, new members of the firm receive ongoing opportunities for career support, advice and guidance.
