Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP Reviews

- Reviewed on October 26, 2017

Advice to law firm management: Treat all the lower level employees as well as you treat the partners and high level attorneys. Be fairer and distribute the wealth and work more equitably.

Pros: The people are great at this firm. The compensation for your work is very high and they have a very good benefits package for employees.

Cons: The work-life balance changes the higher you get in the firm and not for the better I'm afraid. You really have to put in long hours to move to the upper levels here. Pay is poor at lower levels.

Advice to law firm management: If you want to make partner, you should consider looking elsewhere. This firm may not be the ideal fit for you if you want to be a partner in five years or less.

Pros: There is plenty of work to go around at this firm so you won't be left wondering whether you have a job. You will enjoy the decent benefits packages as well. This firm does not pay minimum wage to associates.

Cons: It's possible that the workplace culture at this firm is not ideal. Several associates have left before making partner, which is curious. The firm may require too much time and work before allowing additional partners into the fold.

Overview


Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP is a law firm created by the 2018 merger of two preeminent firms, each more than a century old: Hunton & Williams and Andrews Kurth Kenyon. With 1,000 lawyers in the United States, Asia, Europe and the Middle East, the firm serves clients across a broad range of complex transactional, litigation and regulatory matters. The combination brings together two internationally preeminent energy practices, uniting a tier one oil and gas practice with a tier one power practice. It also integrates two deep and diversified corporate and finance practices, strengthening already robust capabilities in capital markets, private equity and structured finance. The firm now has one of the largest full-service litigation practices in the country, with particular depth in the key litigation markets of Texas, California, Florida and the Mid-Atlantic. Hunton Andrews Kurth brings together multiple widely recognized industry-leading practices, including privacy and cybersecurity, intellectual property, environmental and P3, public finance and infrastructure. Both legacy firms have received recognition and accolades in the league tables and rankings outlets for their work in these, and other, practice areas.

Diversity


"At Andrews Kurth, Diversity and Inclusion are core values. We believe that valuing Diversity and Inclusion enhances our ability to compete for clients and talent."

With this declaration, we make it clear that Andrews Kurth has moved beyond having diversity as a "priority" to a more diversity-mature state, to use a reference of one of the nation's preeminent diversity thought leaders, the late Dr. R. Roosevelt Thomas, Jr.

Having diversity and inclusion as core values means that we share a commitment to diversity and inclusion with our clients and are mindful of incorporating these considerations into our approach to delivering quality legal services.

Definitions

We define the dimensions of "diversity" broadly to respect such personal characteristics as race/ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, religion and disability as well as our individual qualities, talents, perspectives, backgrounds and experiences.

By "inclusion" we recognize the importance and value of bringing together individuals and their different perspectives into our various workplace processes.

Summer associate program


The summer associate experience differs slightly from office to office, it's designed to simulate the experience of a new lawyer beginning his or her career with Andrews Kurth.

We provide opportunities for law students to explore our firm and the reality of a law practice. The program also allows us to meet and work with prospective candidates. In the process, we introduce some summer amusements for everyone to enjoy.

Summer associates may divide their experience between two practice areas selected according to the associates' interests and our hiring needs.

Designated partner and associate sponsors are responsible for assigning and evaluating the associate's work projects. Additionally, each associate has the opportunity to work with other lawyers in his or her practice area. Summer associates are involved in client meetings, negotiations, drafting sessions, depositions, trials and closings.
