Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
“I am proud to say that diversity, equity and inclusion is a priority for our firm. Encouraging and maintaining an inclusive mix of legal professionals and staff is critical to business success, regardless of industry. And, as a global enterprise, we welcome every opportunity to include a wide variety of cultures to provide our clients with services most reflective of their own core values.

Mark Ruehlmann, Chairman & Global CEO
As a global firm, diversity comes naturally to us, and we continue to work hard to reflect the clients and communities we serve. We take care to respect the diversity, talents and abilities of all of our people, and believe our most valuable asset is our engaged, empowered and diverse workforce. Our commitment to pursue that priority has kept us at the forefront in addressing issues affecting under-represented groups in the legal profession.
In recruitment, this means identifying individuals who will honor our commitment to diversity, pushing our firm and the legal profession toward broader inclusion of the talents that a diverse workforce can bring to the table.
The firm is also committed to being an equal opportunity employer, making employment decisions based on merit, skills, job-related qualifications and experience. It is our policy that employees and applicants for employment receive fair and equal treatment regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, age, race, nationality, religion, social and educational background, marital status and family or care responsibilities or any other category protected by applicable law.
Learning and Career Development
Whether you have got your sights on advancement, want to explore an alternative skill or discipline within the firm, or you would just like more support to perform at your best, our Learning and Development team works globally to support each individual’s unique performance and goals. As well as traditional legal training, we focus on a range of skills and traits that will enable you to deliver excellent service to clients, grow your networks in and outside of the firm, and work effectively within our growing teams.
Environment, Social and Governance (ESG)
We know our strong commitment to ESG is important to each and every one of our colleagues, including our supply chain. We actively support the communities we serve, our lawyers engage in pro bono activities and we are taking ambitious steps to record and reduce our carbon footprint.
We also make financial contributions to an array of charities, and the Squire Patton Boggs Foundation embodies our commitment in this area.
We strive to incorporate sustainability into the design and functioning of our offices and encourage conscious use of resources. Our offices around the world have developed ongoing green programs and policies to help achieve this.
We are signed up to a number of commitments to measure our ESG efforts, including:
- The UN Climate Neutral Now Initiative – a pledge to measure and reduce our carbon emissions as a business
- Science-Based Targets – to ensure that the carbon reduction targets we set are in line with limiting global warming with the 1.5 degrees target set by the Paris Agreement
We are also proud members of the Legal Sustainability Alliance and its Legal Renewables Initiative, and are signatories to the UN Global Compact.
