Cleary Gottlieb recruits paralegals who are graduates of four year colleges and universities with strong academic backgrounds. Candidates should be detail-oriented, have excellent organizational ability and strong written and oral communication skills. Because many of our clients are multinational corporations and international institutions, we actively recruit individuals with foreign language capabilities, particularly Spanish, Portuguese, German, French and Italian.
From its inception, the firm has strived to maintain a friendly and collegial atmosphere that makes our offices a positive and supportive place in which to work. We believe strongly in the desirability of a work environment that is free from all forms of discrimination and harassment, where all of us observe the highest professional standards and treat each other with civility, respect and dignity.
