Steptoe has a national and international reputation for vigorous representation of clients before governmental agencies, successful advocacy in litigation and arbitration, and creative and practical advice in guiding business transactions.  We seek lawyers and professionals with personality, integrity, interests, and accomplishments reflecting leadership qualities and personal initiative.

Lawyers and staff work together as a team.  We value dedication, excellence, diversity, and professionalism.  We draw on the creativity of individual attorneys to solve difficult legal problems, many of which have not previously been settled by the courts.  Our lawyers regularly appear as counsel in cases of national or international importance in a number of highly visible legal specialties.

Although Steptoe is a diverse institution, with more than 500 lawyers and other professionals from all regions of the world, our lawyers share a common firm culture that emphasizes two primary goals: pursuing excellence in the practice of law at the most challenging levels and preserving a cooperative, supportive atmosphere.
