Pinsent Masons (Ireland)

The Legal Cheek View

At Pinsent Masons we are a purpose-led professional services business with law at its core. We recognise that our clients rarely have legal problems; they have commercial challenges and opportunities. That’s why we combine legal expertise with a wide range of complementary professional disciplines – enabled by process and technology – to address our clients’ most pressing needs. With over 450 partners and more than 3000 people operating globally from 25 offices around the world, our people champion change, promote progress and enable everyone to make business work better for people.

The world has changed and profitability can no longer be the only measure of success in the legal industry. We have sought to expand and grow profitably, but to do so in a way that recognises the wider value and impact that we as a business can drive in collaboration with the clients and communities we work with.

This means putting a different concept at the heart of our business: that to be relevant and valued by our clients, you need to make a profile – but you also need to do business in the right way, and for the right reasons.

Pinsent Masons has long believed in creating an inclusive and supportive workplace that enables its people to feel comfortable bringing their whole selves to work. The firm is proud of its rewards and recognition to support this. A few of these include a global champion for LGBT+, named as the UK’s most LGBT+ inclusive employer, amongst the top global LGBT+ employers by Stonewall, included in The Times top 50 employers for women, ‘Law Firm of the Year’ at the Legal Business Awards and included in The Times top 100 graduate employers.
