We use our extensive global expertise to offer our clients joined-up, strategic global advice.

A global network

Our lawyers have to know the markets as well as the law. That means understanding the cultural, political and economic factors at play, and how national and international regulators operate – and cooperate.

We pride ourselves on providing seamless international service: we can – and do – operate in any country. That’s why, despite having 28 offices in the world’s main business centres, we give clear, comprehensive advice with a single voice. That unified, faultless service comes from our collaborative, collegiate culture.

StrongerTogether

Where needed, we complement our lawyers’ comprehensive international experience with local advice from our StrongerTogether network. We have non-exclusive arrangements with more than 300 firms across the world, giving us the flexibility to build a team around every client’s specific needs. These relationships are managed by more than 100 Freshfields ‘country partners’ who know the countries intimately. Our firms regularly train together and we second lawyers to and from Freshfields, helping us to build deeper cross-team connection.

More than a third of our revenue comes from markets where we don’t have a permanent presence so our StrongerTogether firms provide local law advice, and we apply our global experience to give our clients joined-up, strategic global advice.

Diversity is crucial for our continued success: we need graduates who are creative, open-minded and curious about different cultures.
