About Clayton Utz

Clayton Utz is one of Australia's leading law firms, with a reputation for standing out – and for being outstanding. With 186 partners and over 1,200 employees across six offices, we continue to build on our reputation for confident, innovative and incisive legal advice. 

What distinguishes Clayton Utz from other firms?

People. It always starts with people. At Clayton Utz, we've built a team of down-to-earth, collaborative lawyers who know that at the heart of exceptional client service is knowing what your client needs. We offer the sharpest legal minds. The clearest advice that cuts through the complexity, so our clients can concentrate on the things that really matter. And an unshakeable sense of what’s possible.

This offers our graduates the opportunities to work on cutting-edge, complex transactions and litigation with lawyers who are recognised as leaders in their fields. We also provide first-class training and development to support our lawyers to be the best they can be. As one of the world's top 10 pro bono firms, graduates will also have the chance to contribute to our pro bono practice and help make a difference to the individuals and organisations it supports.

* Clayton Utz was named among the ten leading pro bono firms in the world in the inaugural Who's Who Legal Global Pro Bono Survey. The survey recognises firms that are leading the way in their pro bono contributions, levels of participation and efforts to institutionalise pro bono work.
