When Legal Week described us as "distinctive" and "defying easy categorisation" it struck a chord with us. Like all law firms we're only as good as our people, and we like to think that ours live up to both of those adjectives.
So, when it comes to recruitment we look for talent, commitment and imagination but also something extra. Potential. To join, you'll need to be very good, but we want you to be great. So that we both get the most out of your employment, we put a lot of effort into selecting people who will rise to the top and then we give them the support and resources to do just that. We call it 'The Deal'.
Our lawyer development scheme was named Best Training Programme 2013 by the Legal Education Training Group.
As you'd expect from one of Europe's most forward-thinking legal organisations we also offer a competitive benefits package, a collaborative working environment and interesting work.
How do we stand out from our peers?
Because we're a people business
New partners often join us citing our approachability as a deciding factor. Clients often talk about us as people they want to do business with. We like to think of ourselves as the world's least stuffy law firm.
That works internally as well. Whether you’re a Partner, trainee, PA or HR assistant, you'll play an important part in our success by sharing your knowledge and skills as well as applying them.
Because we'll make life interesting for you
We've got some great clients and we all get our fair share of interesting work. We make sure that our client teams are the right size for everybody to get involved, whatever your level of experience. And that goes for our business support teams, as well.
Because we'll help you grow
We invest a lot of effort in building the best training and career development programmes to help our people grow. From industry-leading knowledge programmes to award-winning career development schemes, our aim is to help you succeed.
