Prioritizing relationships with IQ and EQ.


Most law firms talk about building relationships. We build futures—for our clients and their ventures, and for our lawyers and staff.

We are smart, entrepreneurial professionals. You share our singular focus on global venture capital and emerging technology businesses. Together we're innovative, intuitive, imaginative and impactful. Come help us make a difference.

Law Students

Gunderson Dettmer’s campus recruiting approach is different from other firms’. We look for students that have experience as innovators, entrepreneurs, in venture development, and in technology.


We challenge every lawyer at Gunderson to be as entrepreneurial and innovative as the people that hire us. Our clients expect smart, informed, anticipatory counsel from intuitive, networked, creative, pragmatic, disciplined lawyers. We expect the same in our candidates.

Professional Staff

A career at Gunderson Dettmer is just that: It’s not a job. We expect our professional staff to connect to colleagues and clients regardless of title or location. Our employees are extraordinary and embrace the same goal—to provide extraordinary service to extraordinary clients.
