Become a better lawyer sooner

As an associate at Porter Hedges, you have a chance to become a fine lawyer early in your career. You certainly will get more experience in a shorter period of time than you would at many typical large law firms. This means your work will be more interesting (translation: as a young lawyer you will attend more hearings, take more depositions and close more deals). We believe that these hands-on experiences are the ultimate lawyer training program.

Just ask any of our associates.

Work with the best

You will be working with some of the best, most outstanding lawyers in their respective fields. For example, Porter Hedges has been named to the National Law Journal's "Mid-SizedHot List" in 2012 and 2010 as one of 20 firms nationally recognized for spotting emerging trends, providing cost efficient service, and establishing long-lasting client relationships. In 2011, the firm's banking and finance, bankruptcy and restructuring, construction, corporate and mergers and acquisitions, energy transactions (oil & gas), and intellectual property practice sections were ranked by Chambers USA, 50% of our partners have been selected for inclusion in "Texas Super Lawyers", and 20 partners were named in the Best Lawyers in America. In 2008, Porter Hedges' corporate practice was named by the American Lawyer Corporate Scorecard as one of the "Top 25" law firms in the country for underwriter's counsel.
