MESSAGE FROM THE HIRING PARTNER
Welcome to Curtis. As you browse through our site, you will get a sense of Curtis as a law firm that combines a sophisticated global practice with a storied tradition and a true sense of collegiality.
Curtis was founded in 1830. Our historic origins are rooted in the United States, and we maintain a strong U.S. practice. However, almost all of our current work has an international aspect to it. Over time, we have become one of the few truly international law firms. "International" for us does not only mean having clients that operate in a world characterized by the unprecedented movement of capital, goods and services across many different countries and continents. It also means that our attorneys possess a unique understanding of the professional and cultural aspects of business as it is done around the world. This understanding reflects the tradition of the firm and its culture today.
We now have 17 offices on four continents and continue to grow and expand into new markets. Our matters rank among the most complex, intriguing and cutting-edge legal challenges that exist today. We are a cohesive firm operating on a global platform. We handle our matters with an integrated team approach across offices and practice groups to ensure a consistently high level of service and the full benefit of the firm's experience and global reach. This global approach helps the attorneys who decide to join us grow into true international lawyers, working with businesses and governments worldwide.
Curtis takes great pride in the innovative nature of our practice, our entrepreneurial spirit, and our diverse, intellectually challenging and supportive work environment. At the same time, we are devoted to providing our clients with first-rate legal counsel—the kind that keeps our clients coming back to us for decades and in some cases more than a century! If these are the qualities you seek in a law firm, then Curtis may be the place for you.
We look forward to hearing from you.
