Clayton Utz is a leading Australian law firm, known for our independent, down-to-earth and inclusive culture.
We have over 1,200 partners and employees and six offices: in Brisbane, Canberra, Darwin, Melbourne, Sydney and Perth. Our clients include many of Australia's top financial institutions, multinational corporations in a range of sectors and industries, and state and federal government departments and agencies. Through our Pro Bono practice - the largest of any law firm outside the US - we also act for low income and disadvantaged people who cannot obtain Legal Aid and the not-for-profit organisations which support them. In 2015, we passed the milestone of 500,000 hours of pro bono legal services since we established our practice in 1997.
Diversity and inclusion is important to us and we work hard to foster a work environment in which we celebrate and appreciate people's individuality. Our national Women and LGBTI networks host regular events that provide opportunities to connect with inspiring people as well as colleagues in social and professional settings. We offer a range of competitive benefits, including flexible work arrangements, paid parental leave, learning and development opportunities, and access to health and wellbeing programs. In recognition of our initiatives to support women in the workplace, Clayton Utz was named a 2015 Employer of Choice for Gender Equality (EOCGE) by the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA). Our professional excellence, pro bono commitment and broader community involvement saw us named Law Firm of the Year (more than 50 partners) at the 2015 Law Institute of Victoria Awards, and Large Law Firm of the Year at the 2015 Australasian Law Awards.
