As one team worldwide, we succeed as a firm by sharing and combining across teams and offices - to deliver truly exceptional advice and service.
We have always been a forward-looking law firm - from taking a sector approach to creating one firm internationally. We’ll celebrate success; but we don’t dwell on it. We’re keen to improve, evolve and take on the next big thing.
Because aiming high is part of who you are.
Excellence expected, shaped, and delivered.
Helping to shape our firm and our success.
At Bird & Bird we want our people to bring their whole self, and their best self, to work. Our local D&I Committee is dedicated to ensuring that everyone is welcome here. We are passionate about creating and maintaining an inclusive workplace that promotes and values diversity and equality, and that is why we are regularly nominated as an Employer of Choice.
Our local Environmental and Sustainability Committee supports and drives our global E&S commitment by creating and reviewing local policies and guidelines, introducing new green and clean office initiatives, and increasing our social and ethical awareness as global citizens.
Bird & Bird is a strong supporter of social justice and we recognise the importance of ensuring the law is accessible to all. We are proud signatories to the National Pro Bono Target. We support our fee earners as they undertake 35 hours of pro bono work each year and encourage all employees to get involved with our pro bono clients. Our pro bono partner oversees all the pro bono work we deliver and is supported by a passionate Pro Bono Committee, driving initiatives aimed at greater social responsibility.
We are focused on sourcing goods and services from suppliers that are environmentally sustainable and ethically made and we support local businesses and communities at every opportunity. Whether it is purchasing stationery or catering from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations or buying gifts from international charitable foundations, regional communities, or organisations supporting survivors of domestic and family violence; if we can see our dollars doing good things in our community, we know we are on the right track when it comes to giving back.
My favourite part of being part of Bird & Bird is its “connectedness” – I know I am part of the tapestry of this truly global firm through my many interactions and friendships with other Birds throughout our offices.

I've been with the firm for a few years. I am impressed by the professional opportunities I've experienced, like international and inter-state travel, and most importantly, the genuine friendships I've made.
Narcissus Dhungana Senior HR Officer
Bird & Bird lawyers have a passion for the sectors they work in ̶ this brings a real energy to the workplace. I work mainly for sports clients and have a passion for sport. Sharing this passion with smart, motivated colleagues who are fun to work with is one of the best things about this job.
