The Firm

The firm employ just under 250 people across multiple areas of law for individuals and businesses alike. They're exceptionally well-regarded in Chambers and Legal 500.

The firm has a genuinely low turnover of staff. We rarely see candidates coming from this firm, which given they employ hundreds of people, is a real rarity.

They nurture talent and offer an incredible development platform to their employees, at whatever level, in order to hold onto their staff.

This is also evidenced at the other end of the scale as they have over 40 Partners. Partnership is always on the cards for the right people and the firm will ultimately want to get the right people to that stage by developing you professionally, giving you second to none client exposure.

This is all at the same time as offering you a great work/life balance which is proven by the fact that ALL their full-time fee earners work flexibly (working 1 or 2 days a week from home!).
