We bring energy and enthusiasm to the way we work with our new joiners, and work together to bring balance between our personal and professional lives.

Our lawyers have a long-standing reputation acting for both national and foreign corporations, and have developed a strong reputation for handling complex and innovative transactions and complex cross-border advice.

It’s an environment that will introduce you to the skills you need to become a brilliant lawyer. Where you’re trusted and empowered to do your best work. And it’s an environment in which your perspective, ideas and experiences will make a real difference.

OUR STRUCTURE

Takeovers and mergers. Arbitration and litigation. Finance and real estate. As a full service firm, our work is incredibly varied. Thanks to the quality of our global network and world-class Business Services professionals, we work with some of the biggest international organisations on some of their most ambitious projects.

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.

A DYNAMIC AND DIVERSE CULTURE

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.

DIVERSITY NETWORKS

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.

CREATING AN INCLUSIVE 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.

RECOGNITION

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. 

PRO BONO AND CITIZENSHIP

Whether it’s a multi-jurisdictional pro bono legal matter, fundraising for a worthy cause, or working with our own supply chain to embed best practice, we focus on building relationships so that we obtain the best possible result for everyone involved. During your training contract you will have a wealth of opportunities to get involved in projects that mean something to you.
