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 from across the globe. And when they join the firm, the International Network helps them feel at home right from day one. The Network provides resources, opportunities to connect with colleagues, ways to share their traditions, and support to navigate the immigration process.
