About Clyde & Co

Clyde & Co has grown to become a leading global law firm in our core sectors. With over 2,500 legal professionals operating from over 50 offices and associated offices across six continents, we offer a comprehensive range of legal services and advice to businesses operating at the heart of global trade and commerce. From developed to emerging markets, we aim to support our clients by putting the power of our globally integrated firm at their disposal with a range of seamless and efficient services and the very best, commercially minded, legal advice. This, together with our sector expertise and regional understanding, allows us to help clients identify and manage risk and liability, navigate challenges, harness commercial potential and achieve sustained growth in today's complex and volatile business environment. We are committed to being a responsible business which means taking responsibility for the impact we have on the environment and seeking to reduce it as much and as quickly as possible. It means taking responsibility for giving back and being a positive contributor to the communities in which we operate. And it means taking responsibility for fostering a truly diverse workforce and an inclusive workplace so that all our people can flourish and fulfil their highest potential, for the benefit of them, the firm and our clients.

Our Values

We pride ourselves on our presence in all major and emerging centres of international commerce, trade and insurance. 

We offer a complete legal service in our core sectors of insurance, transport, energy, infrastructure and trade & commodities. 

We seek to understand our clients' commercial contexts and specific needs so that we can offer them the right advice. 

We are nimble and responsive, staying true to our sector roots while evolving quickly to seize opportunities as they arise. 

We are a responsible business that believes in diversity and inclusion, sustainability, and using our legal skills to do good.

Working at Clyde & Co

Clyde & Co is a firm with clearly defined values. Life at Clyde & Co means being immersed in meaningful work – we help clients overcome challenges and optimise opportunities in an ever-more complex, global and interconnected world. It also means being part of a collaborative team, in which you can learn, innovate and always be yourself.

Diversity & Inclusion

We’re a global firm. Which is one of the reasons why we’re so passionate about diversity and inclusion. We want everyone here to be empowered to thrive. So if you join us, you’ll find there are no barriers to your progression.

Creating a diverse and inclusive working environment, where people from different backgrounds can thrive, is critical to the success of our global business. We are committed to treating everyone equally and with respect. The fact that we’re a global firm makes us even more committed to diversity – we want to be as diverse as the communities in which we work. In recent years, we have made significant progress in this area but there is always more we can do. The firm is a signatory to the UK Law Society' s Diversity and Inclusion Charter and globally many of our offices are members of, or engage with, a number of diversity programmes such as Stonewall, Aspiring Solicitors and The 30% Club. Clyde & Co has also recently introduced the Rare Contextual Recruitment System (CRS) into our graduate recruitment process. The CRS identifies stand out candidates by not only looking at grades, but how those grades compare to a candidate's schooling and background, therefore creating a level playing field and increasing diversity in the legal profession.

Pryde - our LGBT+ network

Our LGBT+ Network

The Pryde & Co network, is the firm's LGBT+ network and is also open to allies. The network has members from all aspects of the firm (trainees, secretaries, business support staff, partners, etc.). The Pryde network is also affiliated with other LGBT+ networks, such as the LGBT+ Insurance Network. The network has two primary goals. The first goal is to provide a support network within the firm for LGBT+ staff. The second goal of the network is to educate friends and colleagues of the firm about the issues that LGBT+ people face. The network is involved in many aspects of the firm. As mentioned, Pryde & Co acts as a support network for its members, but it also often partners with other networks in the firm, for example it discusses and organises intersectionality events with ACED (Achieving Cultural and Ethnic Diversity), our BAME group. The Pryde network also acts as an advisory group for the firm's UK and Global management team; raises awareness through events, presentations and communications; and collaborates with other LGBT+ networks in the industry.
