Our integrated network of offices throughout the UK offers clients pragmatic business driven advice in an environment where innovation, excellence and going that extra mile is the norm. Unsurprisingly, it is exactly those qualities which we seek in the people we recruit. We want individuals who are open, down-to-earth, pragmatic, friendly and responsive. In short we recruit team players who will contribute to the development of our firm. In return we offer a supportive and empowering environment, great training and development programmes where all of our people are given every opportunity to fulfil their full potential. We are proud to have been consistently voted one of the UK's and Europe's best places to work in surveys which benchmark us against all major employers and not just other law firms.
