Legal Careers

A firm is only as good as its people. Which is why we invest as much time and care in your personal development as legal knowhow. Actively encouraging training and supporting ideas and ambition enables our lawyers to:

  • fulfil their potential
  • shape the future of our firm
  • be rewarded with genuine career progression opportunities.

Our approach continues to attract some of the best legal minds in the industry. People who want to:

  • be part of one of the UK's most highly regarded law firms
  • work in an environment which is as approachable as it is commercial
  • work on a stimulating range of cases with a broad spectrum of national and international clients.

Diversity is the cornerstone of our culture. We believe in fostering individuality, innovation and growth ensuring that we recruit, retain and motivate the highest calibre of people across the business.

How to apply

We are always interested in hearing from qualified lawyers wishing to join us, either in response to one of our vacancies or more speculatively for the future. We prefer candidates to approach us directly, rather than via a third party. To discuss current or potential opportunities please contact Angela Parfitt.
