Why MinterEllison

Our clerks and graduates become well-rounded, technically excellent lawyers who help to solve some of our clients’ most complex challenges. But we’ll empower you to be so much more.

MinterEllison is one of Australia’s largest law firms, with nearly 200 years of business history. We’re known for our legal and consulting expertise — and for our inclusive culture and authentic character. We’ve changed to keep up with our client’s expectations. Today we offer legal and consulting services under one roof. Clients rely on our expertise and insights to solve their most complex business challenges. They value our responsive, commercial approach. We are curious by nature, diverse in our disciplines and authentic in our relationships.


We support you to succeed

Your success is our success. Which is why we celebrate and invest in our people. We’re committed to helping our people achieve their best. And our development programs and initiatives are second to none. We’re always working to open more doors for you. Recently, we restructured our organisation to make it even easier to collaborate across all our offices and access an international network of brilliant legal thinkers. Our structure also offers new career paths, allowing you to seamlessly work across multiple practice areas. 

We are proud of our diversity

We are a purpose-led firm with an inclusive, diverse and supportive culture. We know that when we bring together diversity of thinking, skills, experience, gender identity, backgrounds, orientations and abilities, and recognise where they intersect, we get better results. Our aspiration is to build a sustainable work environment where we all feel confident to be ourselves and safe to engage in respectful conversations about our identity, perspectives and experiences. In doing so, we believe that this will enable each of us to excel, generate the best ideas, build better relationships and deliver the best outcomes for each other, our clients and our communities.

We help our communities

Our impact in the community sits at the heart of who we are. Our people actively contribute to the communities they live and work in. We're passionate about making justice accessible to everyone, and working with young people and others experiencing homelessness and poverty to help break the cycle of disadvantage. Our community partnerships ensure that our resources go exactly where they’re needed. With our pro bono legal work, student mentoring, workplace giving and voluntary board service, our collective work makes a real impact.

We know that our ability to create a positive social impact is strengthened when we bring the whole of MinterEllison together to collaborate with our community partners. Our commitment to addressing unmet community need through the provision of pro bono legal services is the core element of our social impact strategy. Our Pro Bono and Community Program is also fundamental to the Firm’s strategy and our broader sustainability initiatives.
