    I have been working at Wachtell Lipton full-time


    Early responsibility and exposure at the very highest level. Immediate respect from clients and peers. Unparalleled compensation among law firms.


    Long hours, but there's no way to avoid that when you have significant responsibility and work for sophisticated clients. I never felt like anyone at the firm was unnecessarily generating work demands.

    Corporate Paralegal Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Wachtell Lipton in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the position through the company's website and received a call asking me to do an interview with them in New York. The formal part of the interview only lasted about 20 min, and the corporate paralegal coordinator had one of the paralegals go around and introduce me to the other paralegals. The second, more informal part of the interview lasted about an hour so the interview lated a lot longer than I expected.

    Interview Questions
    • They didn't ask too hard questions. Tell me about how you work in a team environment, give me an example of how you handle stress/pressure.   Answer Question
