"Our clients want the very best legal expertise, but expect us to master the opportunities that technology offers – to be just as focussed on their digital needs and issues as they are on those of their customers, and to lead from the front, to provide legal advice for their new worlds"
Justin D'Agostino, CEO
Digital is reshaping the world. As our clients look to benefit from the opportunities brought about by technology and data, the work we do as lawyers and the way we work are changing too.
Work we do
Digital change helps our clients become faster, more efficient, and more resilient. It gives them new opportunities to collaborate and compete. But it also carries significant new risks which they need to understand and address if they are to be successful in this digital age.
Navigating these risks requires our lawyers to skilfully analyse complex issues which rarely have clear answers. Few laws and regulations were made for the digital world, and many are evolving to catch up. We pride ourselves on our ability to expertly guide clients towards digital success as one global team.
We have hundreds of lawyers, globally, advising the full spectrum of clients from established large companies to exciting new start-ups on corporate, commercial, regulatory, and disputes matters that relate to cutting-edge digital areas such as blockchain and digital assets, metaverse, and artificial intelligence.
Our own innovative use of legal technologies means clients also regularly look to us for advice on the use of digital in their in-house legal functions. Our lawyers and legal operations consultants regularly guide clients through their digital change programmes, sharing insights and experiences of our own digital efforts.
We are investing heavily on building your digital knowledge and skills, before and after you qualify, and providing you with the resources and environment you need to achieve your full potential.

Way we work
Digital change gives us the opportunity to engage with our clients in new and novel ways. Technology and data are transforming the way our clients operate their legal functions and they are changing our ways of working, too.
We are continually developing comprehensive global and regional digital transformation initiatives to ensure our legal teams can keep pace with the rapid advancement of legal technology and respond to evolving client need. As part of our strategy, Ambition 25, the firm has committed to a multi-year digital transformation programme and this is changing the way we work. Our lawyers are increasingly involved in the digital transformation initiatives, working in multidisciplinary teams with our technical and operational experts to develop and champion innovative solutions and transform the way we work.
Whether you sit in our Corporate, Finance, Technology, or Disputes teams, you will engage with and use the most cutting-edge legal technologies and become a lawyer fit for the digital age.
