The ability to connect the dots and leap to inspired solutions can't be underestimated. We believe it’s this pioneering approach that unlocks a world of opportunity. It's what our clients value and it helps us to be the firm we want to be.
To get there, we’re committed to treating everyone with kindness and respect. Creating an environment where everyone feels empowered and supported to succeed, knowing they can make a meaningful contribution to our firm, whoever they are.
So, we work tirelessly to build a culture that makes it possible – possible for our people, our clients and our communities. We stay curious and work in truly international teams and by enabling our people to get the best out of themselves, we give our clients access to a whole world of expertise.
Sustainability is a core strategic initiative for us – It’s vital to our people, our clients and our planet. We embrace the step change needed to transform our business; not just minimising our environmental impact but, as a global citizen, making a positive contribution towards a more sustainable future.
We believe that technology can be a force for good. Our work with some of the world’s most cutting edge companies gives us first-hand insight into the innovative approaches that create a new blueprint for sustainable living, so where possible we apply this to our own firm too.
We routinely manage our buildings responsibly, consider the impact of business travel, reduce waste and consumption and recycle wherever we can. More importantly, we commit to business decisions that support our sustainability pledges alongside our long-term economic growth strategies.
For us pro bono isn’t an add on. We are passionate about making a positive difference to people’s lives and giving back to the communities we work within.
We give pro bono our time, consideration and full expertise. Because our culture is focused on making it possible. Possible for our people, our clients, and our communities. We believe we can open up possibilities for individuals and organisations in need, by contributing the time, legal expertise, skills, and resources needed to progress their cause.
It’s all the more satisfying when we can work together, with our clients and other key stakeholders to foster and develop collaborative opportunities that have a greater positive social impact as a result.
We’re an outward-looking firm. We're interested in the world, current issues, and emerging trends and we work with great clients doing great things. Things that have a real impact on the way the world does business, and how we all live. So, it's not surprising that we also want to have a positive influence by supporting our local communities.
We work alongside our clients to champion initiatives that make an impact on the community around us. Our people dedicate time through volunteering and fundraising, and partner with charities across the world to truly amplify our impact.
The environment at Bird & Bird is special as we truly work as one team, one firm. Regardless of where one is based, our colleagues from around the world are always there at the receiving or helping end, ready to consult, take part in a project or provide the missing piece of support one needs.
Ivan Sagál Partner
From my point of view Bird & Bird is a truly global law firm that has always had the courage, ambition and capabilities to be at the forefront of market disruptions and landscape changes that directly impact the legal environment. This is even more so today, when digital rights and assets transform our everyday lives and all fields of business. I think of Bird & Bird as the clear choice for individuals who thrive in this vibrant dynamic and enjoy finding innovative and practical solutions to new challenges.
Ivan Kisely Partner
For those who wish to be part of the newest trends (in business, world technology, energy, health care, and other), and those who are ready to overcome the challenges that come with it, I definitely recommend joining Bird&Bird.
