Sidley has built an inclusive collegiate culture firmwide. We strive to maintain an environment focused on teamwork and cooperation.

Given our relatively small size, the London office has a relaxed, down-to-earth friendliness that you may not find elsewhere in the City. Lawyers and support staff at all levels treat each other with a friendly and genuine respect and value the skills and knowledge that each team member brings to the table.

We are located in a distinctive new development at 70 St. Mary Axe with panoramic views across London. Based in the heart of the City and close to Liverpool Street station with all the area has to offer - fantastic restaurants and bars, shopping and sporting facilities. You’ll find a great social scene within the office, with organised events including sailing and skiing weekends, seasonal parties and charitable team activities.

We are pleased to provide a comprehensive, market-leading compensation and benefits package to support our personnel and their families. Our package is designed to support mental, physical and financial wellbeing, working parents and much more. We regularly review and enhance our offering to ensure that it remains competitive and meets the needs of our personnel.
