Who we are

Taylor Wessing is a global law firm that serves the world's most innovative people and businesses. Deeply embedded within our sectors, we work closely together with our clients to crack complex problems, enabling ideas and aspirations to thrive.

Together we challenge expectation and create extraordinary results.



Make your impact

At Taylor Wessing, we never settle for average. We’re creative thinkers, problem solvers and continuous learners who excel at what we do and believe our best work is still ahead of us.

A firm that’s large enough for you to achieve your ambitions, but connected enough to be a true community.

Be your authentic self

A great organisation is one that enables you to unlock your full professional and personal potential. 

You’ll be part of an inclusive culture that allows you to be yourself, with continual development to enable you to become who you want to be

Work in a modern way

You’ll be trusted to deliver your best work in the way that works for you. It might mean coming in later, leaving earlier or working from home in order to keep on top of your personal commitments and live a balanced life. To enable this, you’ll gain access to high-end technology, agile processes and the support to work in a flexible way.

We’re proud of our culture and the positive impact each of us has on our clients and colleagues alike.

Hear from our people

Acting responsibly, together

We're committed to being a responsible business and taking accountability for our actions. We have high ethical standards and take care of our people. We're reducing the footprint we leave in nature and engaging with our communities through cultural and charity work. Being a responsible business means we're active members of our broader society, of the legal community, and of our clients' sectors.

Whether it's building an inclusive workplace, reducing our waste or supporting the arts; we're actively working together to build a better business, and a more sustainable world.

Challenging the status quo, together

Inclusion isn’t just lip service here. It’s key to who we are and all we do. Nurturing a diverse, inclusive culture allows all of our talent to flourish. It sparks creativity amongst our people. It powers innovation for our clients. This is why our Diversity and Inclusion Committee reports regularly to our UK Executive Board and each of our inclusion networks has a partner sponsor, clear objectives and agreed priorities.

To create long-term and wider change, we also focus our community engagement and pro bono projects on inclusion.

Proud, together

As one of Stonewall's top 100 employers, we’re deeply proud of our reputation as an inclusive workplace for our LGBT+ colleagues. All of our policies and benefits are designed to be inclusive and apply regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. 

Meet equaliTW – our active LGBT+ network 

equaliTW provides peer support and networking opportunities, strategic advice on issues relevant to the LGBT+ community and champions inclusion across the firm.  Our straight allies are an integral part of the network, enabling everyone to play a part in promoting LGBT+ equality.
