Who We Are

We are more than rankings, revenues, and the number of our partners. We have a distinct quality that can’t be measured or counted, but that makes all the difference in the world – our passion for what we do, how we do it, for whom we do it, and with whom we do it. It’s what brings all of us together and what we hope brings you to us. Our clients rely on us to provide creative and business-minded advice and solutions. Contributing to their success makes our work fun. We encourage you to learn more about who we are and what we do through MoFo To-Go

Who You Are

Individuals of exceptional intelligence whose academic and other life experiences evidence their talent, motivation, energy, and creativity will thrive at MoFo. Our hiring decisions are not based on grades alone. We look for something more, and specifically seek team members with entrepreneurial spirit, drive, confidence, and commitment to service in our communities. 

Expect More With Your Learning and Development

We succeed as one firm by collaborating across borders, practice areas, and business functions. At MoFo, you’ll have the opportunity to work with and learn from the best legal minds in the industry. From early on, you’ll get exposure to training, support, and exciting projects where you’ll gain practical skills and make life-long connections. Our comprehensive approach is focused on providing integrated learning and development opportunities at each stage of your career. Learn more about our strategy here.

Experienced Guidance

Your best teachers were probably those who were authorities in their areas, enjoyed their jobs, and conveyed their enthusiasm in the classroom. Similarly, you’ll find our partners and senior attorneys to be excellent teachers. You’ll work closely with more senior attorneys in your practice group on complex matters. They’ll guide you in developing your practice skills and help you build long-lasting client relationships.

Continuous Training

MoFo associates work on cutting-edge deals and disputes from day one. We believe in lean staffing to promote efficiency and a steep learning curve for junior lawyers. We don’t have a set timetable or hierarchy for associate responsibility. We encourage our attorneys to take as much responsibility as they can handle in their assignments, and also encourage supervising attorneys to provide the most challenging and varied assignments.

Candid Feedback

We’re strongly committed to a robust evaluation process. We evaluate attorney performance regularly, providing candid feedback to assist you in developing your strengths or addressing any areas of concern.

Dynamic Mentorship and Sponsorship Programs

MoFo Navigate is a global initiative that unifies the firm’s formal mentoring and sponsorship initiatives, allowing us to take a more holistic approach to our attorneys’ professional growth. Under MoFo Navigate, attorneys are given the right kind of support and guidance at the right points in their careers. By encouraging collaboration and leveraging insights across departments and offices, and over the course of each attorney’s career, MoFo Navigate creates a support system dynamic enough to respond to the changing needs of all our attorneys as they grow and develop.

MoFo Navigate is also uniquely and specifically designed to promote greater equity and inclusion, and train both mentors and mentees on the root causes of attrition and how to mentor more effectively across differences.
