Choosing a firm that is right for you is an important decision. We understand that the selection process may seem overwhelming. There's a lot to think about—from the city where you would like to build your career, to the type of work that you will find interesting, to the kind of firm that you envision yourself at, to how to distinguish among many highly respected firms that sound quite similar, and so on.... For us, the summer program also is of utmost importance. Most of our lawyers join us after spending a summer at Morrison & Foerster. Our ability to remain one of the world's leading law firms depends upon the talents and contributions of our exceptional lawyers.
Morrison & Foerster is a global firm with over 1000 lawyers throughout our 16 offices in the U.S., Europe and Asia. We are dedicated to providing our clients, which include some of the largest financial institutions, Fortune 100 companies, and technology and life sciences companies, with outstanding service. Clients rely on our talented attorneys for their expertise and their practical business oriented advice and innovative solutions. We appreciate the opportunity to function as our clients' trusted partners and tackle their most challenging issues. Our commitment to serving our clients' needs has resulted in enduring relationships and a record of high achievement. As a summer associate, you will work with lawyers in several offices on varied matters. Read about our associates' recent accomplishments in Case in Point.
Our work is complex; our standards are high; and our schedules are, in truth, invariably demanding. In this regard, we're just like many other great firms. So, what sets us apart? It's the MoFo mojo. It is our people: Who are passionate about what they do; Who don't think of our work as just work; Who view maintaining a welcoming and diverse environment as central to who we are and what we will always be; Who find the energy and personalities of our colleagues refreshing, invigorating and reason enough to come to work; and Who consider respect for the views of all of our colleagues integral to our exemplary culture.
We hope these pages will provide further insight into who and what inspires us, what makes us laugh (usually ourselves), the causes to which we devote our time and the values that we embrace.
