About Andrews Kurth Kenyon LLP

Andrews Kurth, “straight talk” guides everything we do. It’s how we converse with clients, colleagues, courts—and even our adversaries. It means we pursue issues head-on, rather than detouring into legalese. It means we cut through the confusion and find simple solutions to help our clients succeed.Decades ago, our founder Frank Andrews envisioned a firm where every individual practiced law in a manner “that the firm would have always the full confidence of clients and the trust of all people.” Since 1902, we have worked to live up to this founding goal by embracing an unwavering set of core values. We deliver unsurpassed client service, focusing on our clients' needs and objectives. To ensure success, we consistently hire the best and brightest, value diversity and inclusion in our workforce, practice internal cooperation and mutual respect, and thoughtfully manage and deploy our institutional resources. These values formed our foundation in the last century, and our firm stands strongly upon them to this day.

Today, Andrews Kurth is proud to be recognized as a firm that manages complex legal matters in all major industries and areas of business law and litigation. We build the best team for each client by using a multidisciplinary approach that combines knowledge, experience and individual strengths. The result? Our clients obtain legal guidance that’s efficient and effective. This way of practicing has garnered the firm a diverse group of clients. In fact, many of them have entrusted their legal issues to us for a very long time. We are proud that our consistent and thoughtful approach has forged these close and loyal relationships.

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.
