Our employees tell us that the most distinctive feature of Mannheimer Swartling’s corporate culture is a sense of belonging. We are a highly diverse team of people, but we all share three fundamental values – team spirit, quality and business focus. The result is that we work together to truly understand the business challenges our clients face and tailor the very best solutions for them.

Our goal of delivering the best business law advice requires us to be a workplace that suits everyone. The best people come from all different backgrounds and, without the best people, we miss out on the different perspectives and creative solutions that our clients need. Inclusiveness, diversity and gender equality are a major challenge for the entire legal industry, and we give them high priority.

Sustainability is integral to the firm’s business. Given our size and role as an adviser, we have both a responsibility and an opportunity to influence and pursue issues of long-term importance – to our clients, to the community, and to our employees.

At the heart of the firm: Pure Lockstep

We often hear that our corporate culture comes as a positive surprise. We use Pure Lockstep to explain this – a unique business model with no individual financial incentive, only common goals. Business earnings are shared equally between partners, and associates with the same amount of experience are paid the same salary.

Over many years, our Pure Lockstep culture has created a stable development platform. The right people naturally work on the right tasks, and colleagues help each other out, sharing knowledge and experience. A true partnership in every sense of the word. Ultimately of course, this collegial environment is also our greatest tool for ensuring that every client is guaranteed access to the best possible service.


Mannheimer Swartling’s most important assets are its people. We are a large team with as wide a diversity of interests and motivations as there are opportunities to develop at the firm. Do you want to join us?
