Building connections

I have been a Trainee at Baker McKenzie for a year now and what has left a lasting impression on me is the friendly atmosphere here. A lot of firms claim to have a welcoming and friendly culture, but at Baker McKenzie I’ve seen that it’s a reality. 

Working on worthy causes

There’s a really serious commitment to supporting worthy causes at Baker McKenzie. In fact, through my involvement in pro bono work for the UNA-UK association, I got to meet the Secretary-General of the UN, Ban Ki-moon – undoubtedly the highlight of my career here to date.

Baker McKenzie is such a culturally diverse and open environment. They really care about their people, and that approach encouraged me to get involved in the Firm’s inclusion and diversity programme as a member of the BakerEthnicity and BakerWomen groups.
