A Source of Strength
“We are a truly global law firm, with men and women of diverse backgrounds who speak 79 different languages, and offices in 26 countries around the world. We depend on our global, One Firm culture to channel this diversity and use it to serve our equally diverse clients. Over the years, I have been pleased to see us move into the top tiers for law firm diversity, but that recognition is not why we value our diversity. We value our diversity because it is essential to who we are.”
“We believe that diversity is a direct route to excellence. Building diverse teams of lawyers allows us better to solve complex issues that our clients rely on us to address. I am proud to say that our consistent commitment to diversity has placed us in the top ranks among all global firms.”

“Global law firms have extraordinary capabilities. Each has thousands of highly skilled professionals, increasingly connected around the world, with access to all the resources and experience of their firms like never before. They also can wield the force of the law. . . to change the social order, and. . . have tremendous power for good.”
White & Case is committed to fair and ethical operations that respect the interests of all our stakeholders and recognize the importance of our natural environment.
We adhere to the highest standards of professional conduct and continually communicate and train all of our lawyers and employees in ethics and professional responsibility.
In 2009, we introduced our Social Responsibility Initiative—which comprises our pro bono work, legal education, community volunteering, charitable contributions and Green Initiative—to ensure we fulfil our responsibilities to the global community with the greatest possible impact.
