Experienced Lawyers

Gibson Dunn actively recruits highly qualified lateral attorneys for all of its departments and practice groups globally.  Laterals are very quickly assimilated into our practice and immediately begin to take active roles in case and deal management.

Candidates interested in any of our U.S. offices should view our current openings and submit an application directly via our applicant portal.

Legal search firms interested in submitting a candidate to any of our U.S. offices should use their previously provided Search Firm ID to submit applications via our search firm submission portal.  If you have any questions, please reach out to the appropriate contact in the office for which you would like to submit a candidate.

Candidates interested in any of our non-U.S. offices should view our current openings here.  To submit an application, please send a current CV, copies of university degree certificates and practicing certificates, and a cover letter to our International Recruiting Manager.


Although we have 20 offices in cities around the world (in 9 countries), Gibson Dunn is a single organization in its culture. Each office is an integral and equal member of our global firm – none is a “satellite.”  Everywhere, we pride ourselves both on our ability to provide excellent, seamless client service from each of our offices, and on our success in maintaining our core values of collegiality, teamwork and mutual respect.  We are a diverse, personable group of professionals who believe in operating as a team, so that our collective energy and creativity contributes to the firm’s overall success.
