About Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz

Wachtell Lipton was founded on a handshake in 1965 as a small group of lawyers dedicated to providing advice and expertise at the highest levels. We have achieved extraordinary results following the distinctive vision of our founders - a cohesive team of lawyers intensely focused on solving our clients' most important problems.

We have experience in the fields of mergers and acquisitions, strategic investments, takeovers and takeover defense, corporate and securities law and corporate governance. We handle some of the largest, most complex and demanding transactions in the United States and around the world. We counsel both public and private acquirors and targets. We also handle sensitive investigation and litigation matters and corporate restructurings, and counsel boards of directors and senior management in critical situations. We have a track record of original and groundbreaking solutions and innovations that have had a dramatic impact on business and law. We are thought leaders.

Our distinctive structure defines our approach. We maintain a ratio of associates to partners significantly below that of other firms. We focus on matters that require the attention, extensive experience and sophistication of our partners. We limit the number and type of matters we undertake. Our system of lock-step compensation promotes a careful selection of matters as well as the flexibility to bring the right expertise to bear without regard to factors extrinsic to providing the best service and advice. We work together on a task-force basis on all of our matters, bringing to bear the requisite mix of people and expertise across practice areas. Our structure and approach attract talented and entrepreneurial lawyers, who enable us to achieve excellent results for our clients in complex and critical matters.

Summer associate program

Each fall, we look to select a small group of highly qualified students for our summer associate program. Our objective is to give our summer associates an experience as close as we can to that of a new associate. We make every effort to expose summer associates to all facets of our practice and involve them actively in negotiations, client meetings, courtroom and deposition sessions and travel. Since a primary objective of the program is to give the summer associate a chance to get to know us, summer associates rotate over the course of the summer through several of our practice areas. Our summer associates are free to choose those practice areas that interest them most.
