Why Clayton Utz?
Why did you choose Clayton Utz?
Why Clayton Utz?
Kate Jordan, Partner - Media & Telecommunications
I came to Clayton Utz on the recommendation of a mentor, but the reason why I stayed is because I've been strongly supported and encouraged throughout my career. I've been exposed to a variety of interesting work. I've had every opportunity to build a practice and I feel inspired by the people that I work with and the work that I do.
Doug Jones, Partner - Construction & International Arbitration
Clayton Utz offered me an environment in which I could work for my clients without any distraction from the issues, which sometimes beset law firms, of internal politics and other things. It is a well managed firm where one can get on and service one's clients without those sort of distractions.
Kathy Santikos, Partner - Banking & Financial Services
Clayton Utz is a firm that values the same things that I value. It values integrity, it values legal excellence, it values teamwork which is critical in the competitive environment and above all it offers boundless opportunities to lawyers at all levels.
Niro Ananda, Partner - Private Equity
It's a combination of everything - the people, the work that we do for our clients, the community support that we give. I think it creates a well balanced organisation and one that is passionate, one that is driven to achieve the best it can in all fields it sets out to do and that makes it a very enjoyable and challenging environment for anyone to work in.
Linda Evans, Partner - Competition
It's a firm that has an enormous variety of work and continually gets cutting-edge work. For me that is very important. It is interesting because I actually joined Robinson Cox in Perth which was the firm that then became part of the Clayton Utz family, before full integration, and the Robinson Cox philosophy was very much the same as the Clayton Utz philosophy and it's that which really is critically important for me - good work, interesting work and respect for the individual.
Gary Best, Partner - Real Estate
I understand the culture here and I enjoy it and I do really appreciate the way in which partners work together, I appreciate the way Clayton Utz has a strong vision for where it sees itself.
