Linklaters' Culture

At Linklaters, wherever you are in the world, you will sense an absence of hierarchy, an “open door” philosophy that extends across the firm between people at every level – from partner through associate and stagiaire to business services.

This culture is a cornerstone of our success in Paris, working locally and globally as an integrated team and ensures that the dialogue between colleagues and between offices is open, fluent and continuous.

To know each other is to understand and trust each other. We share a common goal to achieve the best solution for the client and the best result for the firm, and we depend on each other to achieve it. No one will be looking over your shoulder to see if you are putting in the hours, although we do appreciate that sometimes the days can be long. In fact we do everything in our power to help you work flexibly, including the technology to work remotely if and when you need to.

Exceptional quality of training and scope for career development is also a distinctive feature of the culture of the firm. We offer innovative, engaging and imaginative ways for lawyers and business services professionals to keep up to date with new developments and current events.

Training sessions are organised on a global level, which aim to develop not only technical skills but equally project management, business awareness, business development and interview techniques.

Regular informal presentations are held here in Paris in specific areas, from Corporate, Litigation and IP to Finance, Banking and Private Equity – and much more. You will also have access to training outside your specialist area to broaden your all-round knowledge and abilities. All the resources are here to support your development and drive your personal growth.
