Dentons is different. At a time when the legal market is changing so rapidly, being the biggest law firm on the planet puts Dentons in an enviable position; there’s never been a more exciting time to join us.
With over 165 locations in more than 70 countries, we offer a world of opportunity for your career, not least because our scale and size means we work on such a large range of diverse transactions. This means trainees at Dentons get more meaningful exposure earlier, and have greater access to their clients' worlds than they might at other firms.
One of the defining features of Dentons is what we call our polycentric approach: we have no one global headquarters. That doesn’t mean we don’t have a distinct identity, rather it signifies that our firm’s culture reflects the diversity of our clients and of the communities in which we work and live. You will be part of a truly global proposition and have the opportunity to work with the very best legal minds from around the world, wherever that might be.
Similarly, our CSR work is truly global; our goal is to be one of a small group of law firms that significantly improves its profitability, its brand, its quality rankings, and its position in the marketplace in one generation while having a positive social impact on the communities in which we live and work.
The security offered by our size and scale is reinforced by a clear vision of what our clients need Dentons to be in the future. When you’re the biggest law firm in the world, innovation is part of your DNA. Whether that’s reimagining the business of law, developing new technologies to improve efficiency or enhancing talent management approaches to best serve our clients, we’re leading the way. Joining us will put you at the heart of legal innovation.
At Dentons you can be a part of a firm that offers more presence in more places. Dentons is different.
When you join Dentons, you’ll be given all the responsibility you can handle.
