Clyde & Co is a global law firm with over 1,400 lawyers operating from 35 offices and associated offices in six continents. This means that the firm is regularly involved in the biggest and most sophisticated legal transactions and disputes which are taking place around the world. Clyde & Co has a reputation for its work in emerging markets, being the largest international firm in the Middle East and with a rapidly expanding network across Asia, Latin America and Africa.
At Clyde & Co, we focus on core industry sectors: insurance and reinsurance, transportation, energy and commodities. It is the particular demands of these core industry sectors that shape our character as a firm and define our growth strategy.
As a firm that recruits over 45 trainees a year across the UK, the Middle East, the Far East and North America, diversity is something that is important to us as a firm. We do not believe in a “one size fits all” approach when we recruit for Clyde & Co and individuality is something we highly value within our work force, from trainee through to partner. Diversity is critical to the international nature of our business and we wish to continue creating a working environment where people from different backgrounds can thrive.
By supporting Aspiring Solicitors as a Founding Firm, Clyde & Co are hoping to play an active role in changing the current perception and attitudes to access to the legal profession. We are committed to improving diversity within the profession by educating students and lawyers alike about diversity and providing opportunities and assistance to all aspiring solicitors. Most importantly we want to encourage those from underrepresented groups, who believe they have what it takes to become a successful solicitor, to realize their potential in any law firm across the world, without letting anything hold them back.
We are looking forward to working with the Aspiring Solicitors team.
