Gilbert + Tobin

Gilbert + Tobin
Australia’s Employer of Choice 2019

Innovative capability building for the future of work is a key focus of the firm’s people strategy and Legal Project Management (LPM) is an essential skill for all employees. Gilbert +Tobin (G+T) was the first law firm in Australia to formally incorporate AIPM certification into the learning and development pathways of its senior lawyers and to provide AIPM-endorsed training in LPM for in-house legal teams, covering core competencies and practical tools applicable to both legal and non-legal projects. To date, over 220 employees have attended either external or internal LPM training.

G+T is proud of its commitment to diversity and inclusion, which has always been an integral part of its culture and the way it does business. It considers itself a leader in this respect. Some of the ways this is best demonstrated include: G+T is one of four major partners of the Diversity Council of Australia. It has been a WGEA Employer of Choice for Gender Equality since 2014 (inaugural citation) and Danny Gilbert is a WGEA Pay Equity Ambassador. It has a Reconciliation Action Plan and is committed to increasing the representation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians at the firm. One of the key ways this is achieved is through its Indigenous Clerkship Program.
