We’re people you want to work with, generous with our time and ready to help. So no matter what the future holds, with us you’ll be one step ahead.
We're empowering our teams
We develop exceptional talent as they work on high profile projects on a global scale. We welcome diversity and individuality. Along with highly competitive rewards, we'll provide the very best training and the flexibility you need to steer your own career.
We’re investing in our clients
We are business partners as well as legal advisors. Guided by experts from the world of law and beyond, we are our clients' guide to global trends, and their commercial implications.
We’re changing our mindset
Open, approachable people make for great teams. Teams that are more united, even when separated by hundreds of miles. So we invite everyone who works here to shape our ideas. We experiment. We embrace innovative ideas, tools and technology. And we help each other to do the right thing for our clients, communities, and the environment.
Our strengths and vision set out our roadmap to an even more successful future. Achieving it though, starts at home. It calls for everyone who works under the Linklaters name to work to a shared sense of purpose, and common values. It's what we call ‘Our Team Linklaters Way’.
Our Team Linklaters Way
Our five values guide what we do, so that every action we take makes us stronger and brings us closer to realising our goals. Day in, day out, they shape what we expect of ourselves and each other.
1. We strive for excellence
We deliver fantastic client service. We seek and act on feedback, so that we continuously improve.
2. We respect each other
We support our people and embrace diversity. We are accountable, and we lead by example.
3. We are leaders
We are empowered, entrepreneurial and inspire. We take the initiative, encourage innovation and embrace new ideas.
4. We act with integrity
We don’t just do things right, we do the right thing. We are admired as a responsible business.
5. We are one team
We are united, inclusive and collaborative. We deliver the whole firm to our client
This is a time of unprecedented challenge for our clients. At Linklaters, we’re ready. Empowered, united, performing: we give our clients the clarity they need to navigate instability, building confidence in our communities.
And together, we deliver legal certainty in a changing world.
A global outlook
Inspiring confidence is central to everything at Linklaters. It makes us unique – for our clients, for our colleagues and for the communities in which we work. If we can continue to earn the trust of our clients we will lead the way around the world.
Fortunately, while we're proud of our past, we also know where we're going. Our global capability grants us access to the most interesting work. And we're in business to meet the complex needs of the world’s leading organisations.
Everyone who works with us needs to identify with that vision. We're looking for the new breed of commercial lawyer, who can work seamlessly across geographical boundaries. It calls for a global outlook: cultural sensitivity, empathy and a good deal of flexibility, but achieve that balance successfully, and the rewards are substantial.
If you're a globally-minded individual who's passionate about problem-solving, then Linklaters is the right choice for you.
A collective responsibility
Our dedication to corporate responsibility and the local communities in which we work guides our approach to business. It ensures we achieve our vision responsibly and means we think about how we manage our impact on the world around us. These are not one-off issues, they are ongoing challenges. We are dedicated to helping you fulfil your potential as a lawyer in a way that fulfils your social conscience as well.
Launched in 2013, our collective responsibility strategy is award-winning and wide-ranging. It includes commitments to everything from the community and the environment to protecting human rights and combating slavery. We have also joined the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) initiative, helping to build a fairer, healthier and more prosperous society through the power of partnership.
Protecting the right to justice
Every year we draw on our global networks to provide more than 30,000 hours of pro bono legal support to around 200 non-profit organisations, as well as many more vulnerable individuals. For example, we recently contributed to a successful appeal at the US Supreme Court for Bobby Moore, a death row inmate with intellectual disabilities. This case has major implications for death penalty cases across the United States. Safe to say, our work on social finance for non-profit organisations is setting the bar for the sector.
“The support we've received from Linklaters has been outstanding. No question has been too much hassle.” Geoff Burnard, CEO, Investing for Good
“Linklaters has done a great job on the Bobby Moore case and many others. Not all cases end up in the Supreme Court, but they really do make a difference.” Margot Ravenscroft, Director, Amicus
Investing in the community
In 2016, we were re-accredited with the CommunityMark in recognition of our global community investment programme. We have also been recognised as Social Mobility Business Compact Champions. With our Realising Aspirations programme and law scholarships, we are removing barriers for young people from lower socio-economic backgrounds. We are helping non-profit organisations to grow their capabilities. Not only this, but through matched giving and paid time off to volunteer, we are inspiring our colleagues to improve lives on their doorsteps.
Everyone in our business is entitled to one day every year to participate in volunteer-based activity. We also provide many opportunities to take part in fundraising events.
The buzz of progress
As a leading global law firm, we want to be judged not just by our performance as a business but also by our impact on the environment. At Linklaters Stockholm we are environmentally certified according to ISO 14001. We aim to keep adapting our values and lifestyles to create a lasting, positive impact. We work conscientiously with climate compensation and recycling. We use local food producers and we encourage our clients and service providers to make environmentally friendly choices. Closer to home, you will find the Linklaters beehives that we are proud to host on our Stockholm terrace.
