What is the People Deal?

Our People Deal is about delivering the best employee experience to enable one high-performing, global team to serve our clients. It is a key component of our strategy and the future of how we work and has been developed by the actions, decisions and behaviors of our people and in turn, the results we deliver for our clients. The three pillars of the People Deal reflect our strategic focus on client service, inclusion and performance. We encourage a growth mindset and the People Deal reinforces our position as a Firm of opportunity - a place where everybody can succeed, whatever your background and wherever you are located.

  People Deal Values


We bring a performance mindset and entrepreneurial energy to our work and our interactions with each other. We put our clients first and are passionately committed to service excellence by actively listening, anticipating their needs and protecting their interests with responsiveness and commerciality. As the original disruptor law firm we have always embraced innovative change and encouraged new ways of working, learning and collaborating with each other and with our clients. Our curiosity continues to push new boundaries and challenge existing norms.

We strive to be the best in whatever we do – across our practices, sectors, service lines and in our markets. We enjoy our work, which enables us to bring honesty and candor in our feedback. We constantly look for ways to achieve better results while learning and growing and being highly vigilant and proactive in supporting physical and mental wellbeing. We take proactive ownership and responsibility for our own careers. In return, our people can expect to be well led, well coached and well mentored. And when it comes to inclusion and diversity #WeAreNotNeutral

We invented the global law firm and we remain a Firm where we have local expertise, worldwide. Our international outlook allows our people to work across multiple geographies with clients and colleagues. We are committed to engaging with our communities in the places we work and to the sustainable success of our clients and people. Being part of Baker McKenzie means being part of a truly multi-cultural firm united by a genuine and robust culture of friendship. A place where everybody can succeed, whatever your background and wherever you are located.
