The Reed Smith Paris office was founded in 2005 and is often recognized as amongst the best firms in many of our practice areas by legal directories such as Chambers or The Legal 500.

Reed Smith is committed to implementing motivating, competency-based career development programmes covering all aspects of professional development including core values, competencies, performance management, training, mentoring, and rewards and recognition. We have an award-winning learning programme offering hundreds of classes on law, leadership, professional support, technology, and business development. The Paris office also has a series of training seminars on new developments in the law and in the French market.

In addition to the international network and resources of a 28-office law firm, Reed Smith offers an attractive work environment with forward-thinking career development tools and an innovative work-life balance policy. Acclaimed by Working Mother Magazine as one of the best law firms for women to work in, we believe that diversity is a true sign of a world-class business and make every effort to encourage the recruitment and promotion of women and minorities.

Reed Smith lawyers worldwide are encouraged to do pro bono work and provide free legal services to those unable to pay and to non-profit causes. The sense of responsibility within Reed Smith Paris is evidenced by the collective and ongoing commitment of the firm's lawyers and employees to the non-profit organisation, Enfance et Partage. Since 2008, we have provided Enfance et Partage with both legal and administrative assistance.
