Life at BN
Culture and Values
At Barry Nilsson, we feel our culture is what really makes us different from other law firms of our size and contributes to our high level of staff satisfaction. We have worked hard to provide an environment that makes our people happy to come to work, and as a result the firm has a very low staff turnover.
Our people describe the culture as approachable, down-to-earth, friendly and welcoming. We foster a comfortable and non-competitive environment with an open-door policy.
We care deeply about what we do. We also care deeply about how we do it. Our values reflect our priorities as a firm, and our commitment to our clients and our people.
Positive Social Impact
Collaboration and Teamwork
Make an impact
We have a firm-wide culture of making a positive difference through our chosen partnerships across four core areas, including:
- Pro bono
All employees are encouraged and have the opportunity to get involved in our pro bono and responsible business program, the Impact Project.
“The Impact Project encourages and facilitates a firm-wide culture of making a positive difference through our chosen partnerships across four key areas: pro bono, sustainability, community giving, and reconciliation. There are many opportunities for staff to get involved in these initiatives.”
Katie Swain – Head of Pro Bono & Responsible Business
Diversity & Inclusion
From our people to our clients, we are committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive workforce and culture so our people are happy to come to work as their true selves feeling respected, valued and supported.
Being a key area of focus for the firm, our dedicated D&I Committee meets regularly to implement our Diversity & Inclusion strategy. This strategy focuses on recognising, supporting, and celebrating the range of backgrounds of our people, and the unique skills, experiences, interests, and personalities that they bring.
We want our people to be involved and have a say in fostering our diverse and inclusive culture, so we welcome and encourage them to participate in our initiatives and join our D&I Committee.
