Finance - Restructuring Career Associate

Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP
Wheeling, IL 60090 Work Remotely

What you need to know:  Successful applicants will be required to provide proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to the commencement of employment. Applicants who wish to apply for a medical, religious accommodation or any other accommodation required under applicable law can do so later in the process (accommodations are not guaranteed and are decided on a case-by-case basis).

Orrick has a unique opportunity for an attorney with two to five years of experience to join our dynamic Restructuring practice group as a Career Associate in our Wheeling, West Virginia office. The successful hire will work heavily with our distressed debt trading group.

Do you have at least two years of restructuring, corporate or finance transactional experience, preferably with exposure to distressed debt trading?  Have you ever worked with Loan Syndications and Trading Association (LSTA) transactions (par or distressed), post reorg equity trades, bankruptcy claims, restructuring support agreements, DIPs and exit facilities?  In this role, you will utilize your working knowledge and understanding of the distressed world, and will become an expert on trades involving all of these types of transactions.  

Our Career Associate program offers top legal talent an alternative to the partner track while still providing opportunities to do cutting-edge legal work for the world’s leading companies.  Lawyers join us as Career Associates at many stages, from recent graduates and participants in our Career Associate summer program, to more senior lawyers who join after practicing in other settings.  These are rewarding roles if you share our passion for practicing law and delivering excellent service but seek a less intense time commitment.  To learn more about Orrick’s innovative Career Associate program, please visit: https://www.orrick.com/en/Careers/Lawyer-Job-Opportunities/Joining-as-a-career-associate.  

For the sixth year in a row, Orrick is one of Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For, the annual list that recognizes companies with extraordinary workplace cultures.  


The ideal candidate will have:

  • Experience in complex finance, corporate or restructuring transactions with a major law firm.
  • A strong education profile.
  • Transactional experience and an understanding of accounting and financial issues that affect restructuring transactions. 
  • Good interpersonal skills for dealing with clients and opposing counsel.
  • Admittance to the WV Bar is preferred, with the ability to waive in required.
