With over 5,600 people in over 40 offices, we’re a business doing work of global significance.

What we do goes beyond delivering an outstanding service. We lead the market by creating new solutions for our clients’ most complex legal and business challenges, helping them grow, innovate and thrive. By thinking creatively and entrepreneurially, we challenge expectations, push boundaries and build for the future. We draw on a world-leading network of expertise and a unique platform – such as our Advanced Delivery services and our network of Peerpoint consultants, to set the highest standards for our industry.

Global coverage in today’s market does not simply mean having offices in important cities around the world. For us, it means combining our global resources and sector expertise to work on matters that cross international boundaries with our culturally and geographically diverse teams. For you, it means that wherever you work, you’ll find a culture of inclusion and support – feeling confident to bring your whole self to work every single day. At A&O, you're not only valued for what you do, but for who you are.

We work to attract and retain the very best people – and we support them to build their future with us. As part of our high-performance culture, we have high expectations of one another in everything we do. We foster a working environment based on collaboration and mutual respect, where everyone is trusted to do their very best work in the way they see fit, to a standard we all share. It's thanks to our people that we're the only law firm to have featured in the top three of the Financial Times Innovative Law Firm ranking every year, and to have topped the list six times.

As important as our work is, we know that it’s also imperative for our people to have a life beyond it. It's why we've created a supportive and collaborative environment where every individual feels they can belong. We expect you to own your career, and in turn, we will provide you with the support you need to seize every opportunity. Everyone at A&O is given the space and encouragement to pursue the goals, interests and passions that make them who they are.

Community investment

 

With unrivalled depth of expertise and a presence in over thirty countries, we’re in a position to effect positive change on pressing issues all over the world. Our pro bono and community investment work is focussed on two major themes – access to justice and access to education and employment – and adapted to the needs and priorities of local cultures. We also bring together the skills and resources of the entire firm to make a significant impact on the work of one organisation through our Global Charity Partnership.

Last year 54% of our lawyers took part in pro bono work to a value of GBP 21.2m – but we try and use the skills of all of our people to their greatest effect, whichever part of the firm they’re from and whatever their area of expertise. You could find yourself working for global human rights organisations such as the UNHCR, Fair Trials International and the Equal Rights Trust. The opportunities to progress, both personally and professionally, are endless.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

We all thrive when what makes us different is embraced. At A&O, we know we can’t be advanced as a firm by all being the same, which is why diversity and inclusion is one of our strategic priorities. We’re committed to supporting a culture that drives inclusion. Every day, we’re working hard to create an environment where everyone feels that they can bring their authentic selves to work. To be comfortable and confident to be who they are in the workplace. To feel like they belong. To be All In.

We continually listen using tools such as focus groups, surveys, and input from our affinity groups, to understand the wide range of experiences and barriers that our diverse colleagues face. And we hold ourselves accountable, with data and transparency at the heart of our strategy. We’re proud of the how far we’ve come, but we’re not there yet. We’ll keep asking hard questions and making brave decisions until we are. 

We have a number of network groups to help us drive this work. Globally we have A&Out, our award-winning network for our LGBTQ+ community, with over 150 members and 750 allies across the world, and AccessAbility, our global network for colleagues who have a disability or have caring responsibilities. Across the world we have local networks and affinity groups who focus on gender, race, faith and social mobility.

“Simply understanding the benefits of diversity is not enough to make the difference. In the real world, we need to act in a deliberate way to ensure that we create an inclusive working environment where everyone can contribute and progress.”

Wim Dejonghe, senior partner
