International Network

From Australia to Hong Kong, Mali to Chile, and everywhere in between, Bates White’s colleagues possess a rich array of experiences, cultures, and traditions. And the International Network helps them feel at home—right from day one.


What we do

  • Support and resources

    The firm provides a wide range of assistance—from navigating the visa process, to writing and public speaking training, to scoping out local restaurants and international grocery stores.

  • Education

    The network sponsors educational events to foster awareness of challenges faced by international colleagues. Programs have focused on the immigration process, cross-cultural norms, and the challenges of “going home.”

  • Celebration

    We celebrate colleagues’ diverse cultures and customs with happy hours, lunches, and the annual BWorld potluck. Celebrations have focused on Ramadan, Holi, Lunar New Year, Nowruz, and more!
