Our Firm

Lazard’s purpose is to serve clients. From our beginning, this basic premise has shaped our culture and structure.




Our distinctive culture has developed organically across generations and geographies.

Our clients rely on us for sound judgment.

As a firm built on advice, we value the wisdom that comes from experience. We put a premium on attracting and retaining the best people.

We value individual differences.

The history of Lazard is one of entrepreneurs. We know that multiple perspectives, openly debated, encourage the best solutions for our clients.

Partnering globally makes us stronger.

By working together across borders, we leverage Lazard’s global network of relationships to achieve extraordinary results for clients.

We anticipate changes rather than react to them.

We serve our clients best when we are leaders. Through insight and innovation, we create opportunities rather than chase them.

We have the conviction to take bold stands for our clients.

Our long-term success is based on the results we achieve for clients. We are exhaustive in our research and precise in our analysis.


Our clients expect the best from us, and we aim to surpass their expectations, starting with the quality of our people.
