What we
look for


World-class disputes practice. Market-leading corporate practice. Top-tier specialist teams. As a full service firm, our work is incredibly varied. We are a truly global elite law firm. Thanks to the quality of our global network and world-class Business Services professionals, we work with some of the largest international organisations on some of their most ambitious projects.

Our international presence is demonstrated by over 3,000 lawyers in 26 offices across Asia, Australia, Europe, the Middle East and the USA. Working across borders is a key part of our philosophy. Thanks to the quality of our international network, we’re able to offer our clients services across the globe, giving you the chance to work in a truly international way.

We’re organised along six global divisions – Corporate; Dispute Resolution; Finance, Real estate and Projects; Employment, Pensions and Incentives; Competition, Regulation and Trade and Alternative Legal Services. We pull together bespoke teams of experts from across our global network to draw on the right experience and expertise regardless of location. Our multidisciplinary and sector-based approach allows us to deliver value by focussing on the critical issues for our clients.


Diversity and inclusion is a key part of our culture and we celebrate the uniqueness of our people. Wherever you join us, you’ll find talented people with different views, experiences and backgrounds. This breadth of experience and insight adds new dimensions to how we tackle client challenges, drive innovation and attract the best talent.


We’re home to a wide variety of employee-led diversity networks. These provide firm-wide and client networking opportunities, key note speaker events and seminars. Our networks include Women Lawyers, Women in Business Services, HSF Ability, Family, LGBT, and Multiculturalism, which celebrates diverse ethnicity, religion, faith and culture.


We aim to increase the number of women in our global partnership to 30%. We were one of the first law firms to commit to global gender targets publicly, and we’re making progress to deliver a greater gender balance in our global leadership team by 2019.


Our commitment to equality has seen us awarded a number of accolades. In the UK for example, we’ve been recognised by The Times as one of the Top 50 Employers for Women, and we’re immensely proud of our status as a Stonewall Top 100 Employer for LGBT individuals. We were also delighted to receive the BITC Transforming Cultures Award at the Gender Equality Awards 2016 in recognition of our Working Smarter approach to Agile working. In Australia and Hong Kong, we were ranked a Silver Tier Employer for LGBT inclusion by Pride in Diversity and Community Business, and we are ranked Australia’s number 1 legal graduate employer.
