Experienced commercial real estate attorney Laura Hester wanted a law firm home dedicated to diversity and client success. She found it at Womble Carlyle.

“It was really important to me personally to see so many women in leadership positions,” Hester said. “Our corporate and real estate clients pursue transactions across the country and require legal support in many different aspects of the law.”

“I was very impressed with how thoughtful and engaged Womble was in the recruiting process. They made sure we met with key people in the firm, both in Atlanta and in other offices, and in various practice groups, so that we could make an informed decision that Womble was the right place for us” she said.

Hester is one of many lateral attorneys to join Womble Carlyle in the last couple of years. Chief Recruiting Officer Ari Katz says that is no coincidence.

“We want Womble Carlyle to be a talent magnet for the best attorneys and staff in the legal services industry,” he said. “Providing outstanding client service is one of the firm’s core values, and recruiting and retaining the very best talent is critical to achieving that goal.”
