Why K&L Gates

Here are some of the features that make K&L Gates an outstanding place to work and develop your career:

Globally Poised

With more than 45 offices located in key capital cities and world commercial financial centers across five continents, our lawyers and staff have the benefit of experiencing a broad scope of international jurisdictions, industries, and cultures, not to mention having the opportunity to travel and live in interesting locations around the world.

Truly Integrated

Our firm has grown internationally by strategically combining with firms that fit our business model, culture, and value systems. This selectivity has helped us to achieve our goal in creating a truly integrated firm, and not a “firm of firms” that merely share a brand. We operate as one firm, united and without borders in a highly collaborative environment. 


In today’s data-heavy, fast-moving, and multijurisdictional environment, we understand the importance of being able to manage the growing volume of information at ever-increasing speeds. Through our innovation committee and the contributions of our lawyers and staff, we actively invest in technology platforms and harness innovative techniques in processes and procedures which enhances our efficiency and delivery of services, facilitates collaboration, and helps solve client problems.

Socially Responsible and Inclusive

Extending our time and talents for the benefit of the common good is something we take great pride in. Corporate social responsibility is more than a management imperative at K&L Gates, it’s woven into the DNA of our firm. Here you’ll have the opportunity to interact with diverse and interesting colleagues, and participate in and take advantage of initiatives surrounding diversity and inclusion, community outreach, and pro bono services.
