If you're a judicial clerk, you will be in good company at Winston & Strawn. Each of our domestic offices has its share of former law clerks. Our attorneys have been judicial clerks at the U.S. Supreme Court, federal courts of appeals, federal district courts, bankruptcy courts, tax courts, and state supreme and intermediate appellate courts. Some of our attorneys have clerked for more than one judge, and some have clerked in more than one court. Many law clerks come to Winston & Strawn because of our stellar litigation practice. Others join us after clerking in bankruptcy and tax court and have been able to put their real world experience to immediate use.
We provide seniority credit to those who have clerkship experience and strive to place attorneys in an appropriate class based on their prior experience. We also award clerkship bonuses that are competitive with those of other large law firms.
“Our associates have the opportunity for more ‘stand-up’ lawyering experience at both the trial and appellate levels than their peers at comparable firms.” Gene Schaerr
