About Us

Who we are and how we work

We are one of the world's pre-eminent law firms, with significant depth and range of resources across five continents.

As a single, fully integrated, global partnership, we pride ourselves on our approachable, collegial and team-based way of working.  

We always strive to exceed the expectations of our clients, which include corporates from all the commercial and industrial sectors, the financial investor community, governments, regulators, trade bodies and not-for-profit organisations. We provide them with the highest-quality advice and legal insight, which combines the Firm's global standards with in-depth local expertise.

Last, but not least, we aim to be easy to work with, down to earth and approachable.

  • Putting clients first
    We expect our people to put the interests of our clients first: we invest in understanding client organisations, their operating context and the opportunities and challenges they face.
  • Creating the best team
    We believe in the power of teams, rather than individuals: to secure successful outcomes, we bring together groups of people with just the right mix of sector, product and jurisdictional knowledge.
  • Giving product advice
    We give practical advice: we draw on the huge range and depth of our expertise to develop commercial, effective solutions for clients.
  • Nurturing a culture with integrity and respect at its core
    We are committed to nurturing a high performance culture founded on robust ethical standards, professional integrity, responsibility, accountability, inclusiveness and kindness. Our values-based Code of Conduct sets the standard for what we expect of ourselves and of each other.
  • Investing in the future
    We invest for the future: we have always taken the view that we must invest today to build the firm our clients will need 15, 20 or more years into the future. As a result, our resources are second to none, whether our people, our know-how, our approach to client service, or our sheer geographic footprint across 32 major financial centres across the Americas, Asia Pacific, Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
