Our aim is to be the leading global law firm, building relationships that endure through business cycles to ensure that top companies and financial institutions instinctively turn to us for support on their most important and challenging assignments.

Doing this requires a constant focus on our clients, a deep understanding of our markets, globally minded and committed people and responsibility and integrity in the way we interact with our communities and manage our impact on the environment.

As one of the leading global law firms, we undertake the most important and challenging assignments for the world’s leading companies, financial institutions and governments, helping them to achieve their objectives by solving their most complex and important legal issues.

We build lasting relationships with our clients, and we are committed to supporting them at all times, as they adjust to changes in their markets and the regulatory landscape. The size and shape of our business is determined by our clients and the work we do for them.

We believe that the strength and depth of our practices, our client relationships, our sector approach, the quality of our people and our global platform give us significant competitive advantage.

Our work is divided into three broad divisions for management purposes: Corporate; Finance and Projects; and Commercial. In practice, advising our clients usually involves more than one division.


Our corporate division is recognised as a world leader in mergers, acquisitions, flotations, joint ventures and private equity. These are often pioneering deals. While many people associate corporate law with mergers, acquisitions and private equity, there are many other types of expertise at work here. Lawyers specialising in antitrust/competition, employment, pensions and incentives help companies with some of the toughest issues facing modern business.

Finance and Projects

Our finance practice leads the world’s strongest financial institutions practice and advises companies, funds and governments as well as banks in their funding, hedging and investment activities. Innovation and market leadership stand at the centre of our work. Our projects team leads many of the world’s most important energy and infrastructure projects.


Our commercial division offers a broad range of expertise, including litigation and dispute resolution, real estate, tax, technology, media and telecommunications, intellectual property and trusts. Most of the time, we advise corporate and financial institutions, but our trusts lawyers also work with individuals, charities and trustees.

Our people

To deliver consistently excellent advice to our clients, we depend on having expert, flexible and entrepreneurial lawyers who are at the very top of their profession. We provide world-class learning and development and knowledge management to everyone across the firm, at every stage of their career.

Working at Linklaters means being globally-minded, mobile, agile and responsive to clients and market opportunities. Our commitment to our people – the Deal – is to provide an outstanding career experience that offers a passport to success whether people stay with the firm or develop their careers elsewhere.

We have an inclusive, meritocratic culture where people can excel. We believe that different perspectives enrich the culture of the firm and help us provide more rounded solutions for clients.

Award winning

Client satisfaction is the real measure of success for the work we do, but we also value the external recognition gained through the awards we have won around the world.


Struggling with falling income and funding cuts, our community partners continue to be affected by the economic downturn.

At the same time, this climate is driving remarkable innovations in new income streams for charities. It is also heightening interest in more effective and accountable governance models in the aid sector.

Against this background, our approach to our free legal advice programme is to deepen support for local community partners where we can really add value, while contributing to innovations and initiatives where we can draw upon our cross-border expertise.

Pro bono activity at the firm spans the four roles of Collective Responsibility. Our lawyers act as Trusted Advisors,as with any client, while they grow their experience as Valued Colleagues in applying their knowledge in new settings and working in new teams. Much pro bono work supports our lawyers’ standing as Engaged Professionals and they act as a Good Neighbour in giving their time and expertise in this way.


Linklaters’ environment lawyers advise many of the world’s most significant financial institutions and multi-national companies.

Clients around the world rely on the team’s cutting-edge expertise in the law, regulation and soft law applicable to those environmental issues that affect global trade and industrial activity. These include climate change, policy, emissions abatement, product stewardship and decommissioning legacy management.

Linklaters’ environment law team is unique in having a presence in Europe, the US and BRIC, giving it a global reach that enables us to provide comparative regulatory advice and to support transactional activity across the world. The group is well known for its stand-alone expertise, but also functions seamlessly with market-leading corporate, projects, financial regulatory and derivatives teams.
