In it together
We believe that if you feel recognised, supported and invested in, you will simply achieve more. And we believe that an inclusive culture helps to encourage and shape fresh ideas. For us it's just common sense. It's why we work so hard to help our people to be the best they can be. And it’s how we keep finding imaginative solutions to complex client problems.
Look around AG and you'll find people from every walk of life. A diverse group of original thinkers, decision makers and negotiators who deliver results. And they have one thing in common. In their words, a feeling that we're "in it together" – with each other and with our clients.
That is the culture of AG. We've always been straight talking, friendly, open and a breeding ground for new ideas. But maintaining the very best environment for everyone never stops.
Culture is something best experienced. We're confident you'll find our team a warm, bright and rewarding complement to your own.

We're commited to inclusivity in all its forms and are dedicated
to helping everyone fulfill their potential.
We're always learning, developing and investing in talent, but here are just a few highlights so far:
- We've been named a Times Top 50 Employer for Women 13 times by The Times newspaper.
- Our Mindful Business Charter, developed collaboratively with clients and other law firms to promote healthy and sustainable working practices, now has charitable status and over 80 signatories.
- We are committed to providing spaces for diverse voices to be heard and lived experiences to be shared. We continue to invest in our diversity & inclusion networks, which have over 300 members and have been instrumental in promoting inclusive behaviours across the business.
- Our 'How to Flourish' programme – a long-standing initiative supporting female progression to senior positions in law – will shortly be celebrating its 10th anniversary. So far, hundreds of AG colleagues and clients have taken part.
- More than 800 of our people benefitted from personal development and business skills training last year – 6,193 hours' worth of training courses were delivered.
- In 2020 we became the first law firm to be named a '50:50 project' partner, joining the BBC's global network of organisations committed to gender equality. The project measures data to help ensure a fair and diverse balance of voices is reflected in all external content that is produced. Our female representation across all media has increased by 23% since we began this project.
