Support to help you attain the highest measure of success and fulfillment.

Hunton Andrews Kurth seeks to attract and retain the brightest and most accomplished lawyers and professional staff in the world.


Our success tomorrow depends on the talent and skill we develop today.

Hunton Andrews Kurth’s Office of Lawyer Recruiting and Development (OLRD) works closely with the firm’s practice groups and the diversity, recruiting and associates committees to deliver a comprehensive training curriculum designed to help lawyers learn the essential legal, practice development and client service skills needed to build an effective, rewarding practice. Engaged in all aspects of professional development—from recruiting through training and promotion—the OLRD oversees and coordinates firmwide program and policy initiatives. Starting on day one, and continuing throughout your career, our ongoing practice- and industry-focused training programs, as well as annual evaluations and ongoing feedback, offer you the resources you need to provide the exceptional client service for which Hunton Andrews Kurth is known.

We also provide continuing education and professional development to help our professional staff develop new skills, stay current on new technologies, and build long-term, rewarding careers at the firm. An online training site, a full professional development library and regularly scheduled classes are just some of the many formal and informal educational programs available to professional staff. We also provide reimbursement for work-related seminars and professional activities, professional association memberships, and university-level courses that prepare our professional staff to better meet the current or future needs of the firm.


For early career lawyers, the support of a strong mentor can make a world of difference. We pair our associates with more senior lawyers who provide focused attention, advice and feedback. We help them integrate into our organization and culture, identify and align their practice goals with those of the firm, and learn how to succeed at Hunton Andrews Kurth and beyond. Through informal mentoring, our laterals are also given the feedback and guidance they need to take their practices to the next level.


It is the cornerstone of our firm and means acting with honesty and fairness in all our dealings with others, no matter how aggressively or tenaciously we pursue our clients' interests.


We strive to hire the highest-caliber professionals, creating an environment that supports professional growth, developing top-tier legal practices, and rewarding team members based on merit, not position.
