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.

Because we place a strong emphasis on professional growth, new members of the firm receive ongoing opportunities for career support, advice and guidance.

At Shearman & Sterling, engaging in pro bono work and community service is an essential aspect of the firm. We encourage our lawyers to work together to affect change for those who need it most. Working to address issues around the world, we believe that equal access to justice is vital for a fair society. This is especially critical for indigent individuals and nonprofit organizations with limited resources for legal services.
