Local knowledge with global experience
Whatever success looks like for you, we have the capabilities to meet any legal challenges that come along the way. Our international network of offices with a combination of local expertise and global experience helps us provide innovative and informed solutions.
What do we look for?
We’re after high-calibre people - professionals who care about high performance and never shy away from challenge. We also want genuine collaborators - those who work best when they work closely with colleagues and clients, and who believe in openness and respect. Perhaps most importantly, we want lawyers who want to "move their minds" – who are always looking for new and better ways of doing things, and share our approach to innovation.
What can we offer you?
In an environment as driven and ambitious as ours, challenging and varied work is a given. The opportunity to explore new ways of working and develop your network is what will really open up your career. Many of our lawyers have enjoyed secondments to our other global offices, some of them even benefiting from permanent transfers overseas. With our guidance, we’ll help you grow as an individual, enhance your legal expertise and fulfil your professional goals.
