Global and local market forces are rapidly changing the practice of law. Clients expect high quality, seamless service delivered faster, cheaper and better everywhere. Globalization—and the corresponding desire to protect cultural identity—is creating challenges and opportunities for law firms around the world.
In this environment we have created Dentons, the world’s only truly polycentric, global law firm, to meet these challenges.
All successful organizations have a clear vision of what they would like to be in the future, and a strategy for how to get there. The Dentons vision is to be the law firm of the future—right now. Our strategy is to grow, integrate and reinvent our business.
You have the opportunity to help build the law firm of the future and be a part of the strategy that gets us there.
The Dentons vision is to be the law firm of the future—right now. We are working to reinvent the business of law, capitalizing on new technologies and talent management approaches to better serve our clients.
The legal profession has not benefitted from technology like other professional services industries. We plan to change that. That’s why we created NextLaw Labs, a global collaborative innovation platform focused on developing, deploying, and investing in new technologies and processes to transform the practice of law around the world.
Through NextLaw Labs we are engaging strategic partners from the technology community to build and bring to market new products that will enable us to work better, smarter and with enhanced value for our clients.
In May 2016, Dentons announced plans to disrupt the pay-to-play legal referral industry with its own free, quality-based referral network. Based on a new technology platform, the Nextlaw Global Referral Network is committed to connecting clients with the top talent around the world, and connecting high-quality firms with opportunities everywhere. We know that clients want the right law firm, not the law firm that has paid a fee to be part of a referral network. Members will gain an instant, global footprint through a system that encourages reciprocal referrals.
With Dentons, you will have the unique opportunity to pilot and test new technologies and innovation unavailable at any other firm.
One of the things that makes Dentons unique is our polycentric approach: we have no one global headquarters and no dominant national culture.
Dentons reflects the diversity of our clients and of the communities in which we work and live. Harnessing the unique perspectives of our people across our global organization is a business imperative. We offer clients talent from diverse backgrounds and countries, with deep experience across many geographies and every tradition of law, enabling us to get a deal done or dispute resolved in virtually every corner of the world.
Our polycentric approach and our commitment to diversity and inclusion place a premium on the contributions of all of our lawyers, professionals and trainees, makes for a uniquely positive culture in which you can grow and expand your career.
Dentons is home to top-tier talent that is found at the intersection of geography, industry knowledge and substantive legal experience.
We offer more lawyers and services in more places than any other firm in the world. This offering reflects how we see the practice of law changing. Offices used to be the principal places in which services were performed, and that is still the case in many large, more traditional law firms. At Dentons, we view our offices as portals that connect legal talent across regions.
Working with Dentons, you will have the opportunity to work with the top legal talent around the corner and around the world.
Clients want three things: extensive experience, deep industry knowledge and local cultural understanding wherever they operate. Dentons operates at the intersection of all three.
Driven to provide clients a competitive edge, and connected to the communities where our clients want to do business, we know that understanding local cultures is crucial to successfully completing a deal, resolving a dispute or solving a business challenge.
Each of Dentons’ foundational firms was truly in and of the communities it served: firmly grounded with the leading corporate clients and industries in its regions. We continue that tradition today.
At Dentons you can be a part of a firm that offers more presence in more places. With 135+ locations in 50+ countries, we offer a world of opportunity for your career.
