From a shifting geopolitical landscape to the exponential growth in FinTech, this is a time of unprecedented change. At Linklaters, we’re ready. Our people go further to support our clients, with market-leading legal insight and innovation. And we go further for each other, too. 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. Great change is here, and we make sure you're ready.

Investing in our clients

New markets, new technology, new demands. The world is changing at a dramatic pace, presenting businesses with complex challenges. At Linklaters, we offer the market-leading expertise they need to succeed. 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.

Work with us, though, and you’ll discover it's our approach that sets us apart as much as our expertise. We're supportive, open-minded, and passionate. With cutting-edge work, we grasp client problems from every angle. Then we go out of our way to help. And it's that unwavering commitment that fuels our expertise, and fantastic client service.

While we've already achieved a great deal, we're not complacent, either. Our vision is to be best-in-class, which means winning in our chosen markets. We want to be the go-to-firm for our clients. So we will become ever more client-centric, collaborative, and entrepreneurial.

Empowering our teams

Working together and working well together: there’s an important difference. In an international firm of our scale, it’s a given that we work on complex projects, over multiple jurisdictions. But it’s how we do it that makes us different. Wherever you are, you’ll find people you want to work with. We welcome diversity and individuality. It's what makes this a great place to work.

We attract and develop, exceptional talent. Whether you choose to stay or pursue opportunities elsewhere, we want you to fulfil your potential. And we’re well aware that your job satisfaction and our success go hand in hand. So you'll be involved in high-profile, multi-jurisdiction work on a global scale, for the world's leading organisations. Along with highly competitive rewards, we'll provide the very best training throughout your career, with open feedback at every stage. And we reward your commitment to learning, with the flexibility you need to steer your own career.

Together, we’ll create an environment where outperforming is the norm. We’ll ensure you exceed what you imagined you were capable of, and deliver the excellent service our clients deserve.

Focusing on the future

In our rapidly changing world, our clients, and our own people, expect us to keep evolving to stay a step ahead. So we're entrepreneurial, and it's this mindset that's led us to set legal precedents. We seek out ways to do things differently, and we embrace innovative ideas, tools and technology.

It starts with our culture. Join us and you'll be struck by how well we work together. Open, approachable people make for great teams. Teams that are more united, even when separated by hundreds of miles. We invite everyone who works here to shape our ideas, and ensure they're not afraid to experiment. We help each other to do the right thing for our clients, communities, and the environment - because together, we're more effective.
