Firms with thoughtful leaders and great partners grow and prosper. That makes the duty of developing our best associates into strong, productive partners and attracting top-quality laterals essential to McGuireWoods’ success.

We have hours and revenue targets. But we’re also dedicated to the growth of your practice and the development of your career through training and mentoring.

Lateral Partners

At McGuireWoods we challenge ourselves to recruit, develop, advance and retain the best lawyers and we have a robust lateral integration process. The firm provides lateral partners with innovative resources to learn about its culture and ensure a smooth, successful transition so they quickly become productive and efficient.


We identify and promote associates who understand the need to go the extra mile, who take a result from good to great. We ensure a stimulating work environment and we reward associates who provide the highest level of client service and who demonstrate a skill for cultivating new clients.

Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity and inclusion are core values at McGuireWoods. Together, we continue to build an inclusive culture at all levels within the firm that supports and celebrates the diverse voices of our employees. We recognize that diversity and inclusion are central to our success. McGuireWoods encourages qualified applicants of every race, ethnicity, culture, gender and sexual orientation to apply for a job and grow their careers with us.


We also care about the health and well-being of our lawyers and staff. The firm offers a comprehensive and competitive benefits package with the kind of support needed for busy professionals — such as back-up care and flexible hours.
Colleagues who care about their work, clients and each other are key to our success. If this sounds like you, take a look at our open positions.
