Our shared passion to be the best at what we do brings us together at Vinson & Elkins. After all, our reputation as a top-tier global law firm depends on developing talented lawyers who are leaders in their fields.

A variety of social and community activities will give you the chance to get to know your colleagues, and you will find out that having fun is part of our culture. 

We hope you will consider this unique opportunity to establish lasting relationships in a welcoming environment that values inclusiveness and diverse perspectives – where lawyers and staff respect and support one another.
