Before her first interview at Cleary Gottlieb, Chantal Kordula read a description of our offices as "light and airy." As Chantal recalls, she didn't give it much of a thought.
"Which made my first reaction so surprising. When I arrived, the design registered immediately. In a very modern and clean and compelling way.
I was some forty stories up and looking out the windows at New York Harbor. And the art on the walls was from the Emerging Artists program – Lichtenstein before Lichtenstein was famous, and the like.
As I was going from one interview to the next, I realized that Cleary Gottlieb's offices reflected a sense of the the firm itself. The kind of place where you would enjoy working. It was striking."
