The Executive

Leading a company takes a robust set of executive skills – leadership, adaptability, business acumen, collaboration, and creativity. Working closely with Sidley’s sophisticated clients gives our lawyers insight on what it takes to make the transition to business leader.

In-house counsel

Sidley trains its lawyers to be business-savvy problem solvers and trusted counselors who understand their clients’ businesses and goals. This puts our lawyers in the ideal position to transition their practice to in-house legal teams – often with Sidley clients.


Sidley lawyers are frequently called to public service, and the firm offers a launching pad into state and federal government roles in which they will help shape and define the law - as judges, U.S. Attorneys, elected representatives, leaders of agencies, and many other diverse roles in public service.


Sidley lawyers have gone on to use the project management, and problem-solving skills and experience they have developed here to follow their passions and serve their communities working in and leading non-profit organizations. The opportunities to work on pro bono matters while building a network in private practice are instrumental to their success.

The Entrepreneurs

For lawyers with an entrepreneurial spirit, Sidley provides an excellent training ground to develop your legal skills and experience, learn how your clients do business, and expand your network - invaluable assets as you move on to launch your own business.
