Although Reed Smith works from multiple locations, the firm's lawyers are linked by more than technology. All share a common culture, with Core Values supporting Reed Smith's firm-wide commitment to add value, achieve excellence, and promote professional development. These foster a workplace in which diversity and inclusion, pro bono service and community support are manifest.
As the firm continues to grow, it remains sharply attuned to its Core Values, which define its professional character as well as what clients can expect from Reed Smith lawyers, who live these values every day.
While the scope of Reed Smith's operations evolve with clients' needs, the firm's Core Values remain constant:
- Teamwork and Respect
- Innovation and Improvement
It's not just about the race, it's how you get there.
In celebration of the Olympic year in London in 2012, Reed Smith was proud to sponsor Nikki Emerson, Paralympic wheelchair race hopeful. Nikki embodies the firm's Core Values in the way she trains, races and interacts with the athletics community. She assures us that, "It's not just about the race, it's how you get there." In demonstrating the firm's Core Values, she aims to be the first across the finish line. As does Reed Smith!
We wish Nikki all the best in her studies and training, and hope to see her in the next Paralympic Games.
