Globetrotters

At Ropes & Gray, we encourage all our lawyers to take advantage of our GO (Global Opportunity) programs. Attorneys can immerse themselves in a new culture or city in one of our 11 offices worldwide—or on occasion, with one of the firm’s clients—and gain invaluable career experience along the way.

Here’s what some of our attorneys have to say about their GO experience:
