Our values

Pioneering, united, human—these are the three values that shape our distinctive culture and differentiate us from others. They capture the unique spirit of our Firm, and guide the behaviours and actions that enable us to deliver on the promises we make to our clients and our people.

What our values mean for you and your career

Pioneering

We seize opportunities to innovate. We’re passionate about growth, and we accelerate careers with first-rate training and mentoring. So, you’ll learn from the very best legal minds in the industry.

United

We are One Firm with a shared sense of purpose. Our people develop meaningful relationships across the globe which gives them a valuable and trusted support network like nowhere else. It means that, at White & Case, you’re never alone.

Human

We care about each other and the world around us. We provide everyone with the opportunity and platform to do great work and own their future. It’s about empowering you to be the best you can be.

A Firm that welcomes everyone

Our work to recruit, support and develop people from underrepresented backgrounds has already made a difference, but we know that there is still much more to do.

Nathaniel Crowley

From the day of my interview in 2015 to the present day, I’ve encountered countless colleagues who self-evidently work tirelessly to make the Firm a truly inclusive and diverse place to work.

Nathaniel Crowley, Counsel
Onose Ogbebor

A lot of firms say all the right things, but I say that you need to look at the data. Actions always speak louder than words. When I look at a firm, I want to see evidence that there is progress for women and for Black lawyers, both right at the top and also at more junior levels.

Onose Ogbebor, Future Trainee
Wheatley Joanne Diversity

It's important to me that everyone has access to the same opportunities irrespective of how they identify. Being part of the London Spectrum Committee allows me to take an active role in advocating for others who may not be able to do this for themselves.

Joanne Wheatley, Business Analyst
