About us

Two women talking on the bridge

We are one of the world’s oldest and most successful law firms, serving businesses from Europe to Asia and the Americas.

We are global

We advise our clients wherever they do business. Although we have offices in the world’s main business centres, more than a third of our revenue comes from markets where we don’t have a permanent presence. That’s why we look for graduates who are creative, open-minded and curious about different cultures.

We are our people

Our clients span a variety of sectors and include leading national and international corporations, financial institutions and governments, as well as charities, for whom we work on a pro bono basis. They come to us for advice on their most complex challenges and value our ability to work together across practice groups and geographies. To meet their expectations, we need people who think globally and are at their best when working in teams.

We aim to add value

One of our core principles is to add value in everything we do. So as well as dealing with our clients’ immediate issues, we anticipate how future legal, commercial and political developments will affect them. This is why our lawyers need to understand not just the law, but each client’s business and the sector in which it operates.
