"I take great pride in being the Sponsoring Partner for our Corporate Graduate Programme. As Head of the Company Compliance and Governance Practice Group, the value added by well-trained, educated and experienced company secretarial professionals has been very apparent to me for many years. While company secretarial is one of the best examples of where law and practice meet and are applied, there are many other practice areas that will benefit from talented paralegals and I am an ardent advocate for this development in Arthur Cox and expect more and more practice groups to participate in the Programme and hire paralegals into their teams."
DR THOMAS B. COURTNEY PARTNER AND SPONSOR OF THE CORPORATE GRADUATE PROGRAMME
Our culture is warm and open, honest and appropriate. Our approach is modern and our reputation is well-known. Our global mindset and international approach ensures we are forward-thinking and our domestic roots maintain our pride in our heritage, our domestic work and the way our firm has shaped the Irish economy and supported Irish corporations. We are proud of our past achievements in shaping the legislative and corporate landscape in Ireland. We also are proud of our more recent ones and we look forward to our future ones.
Our people are not corporate in style, focusing on being collaborative team players for each other and for clients. Personal development is key for everyone who works in the business. Our people know that strength doesn’t have to come from standing out, but from being standout. There is lots of room for energy, personality and diverse points of view.
Our business is all about opportunity and is, in itself, an attraction for talent. Our culture lives that experience every day.
Equality, Diversity & Inclusion
Our successes, our culture and our history are all built on our people. One team working together for a common purpose to provide a positive, enabling and empowering environment for all.
Arthur Cox has an active Equality, Diversity and Inclusion programme, which is led by our two diversity partners, Grainne Hennessy and Simon Hannigan. Grainne and Simon take a leading role in promoting the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) programme firm-wide. Through regular updates, visible promotion of upcoming speakers and seminars, and employee focus groups, the programme is very much an open forum for sharing. Our Equality, Diversity & Inclusion programme is currently focussed on three key strands:
- Race and ethnicity
- Sexual orientation and gender identity
