Firm description and career prospects
We are a full service national law firm with offices in Birmingham, Exeter, London, Manchester and Nottingham - with an impressive client portfolio, including blue chip corporates, local and owner managed businesses, NHS Trusts, major insurers, education and public sector organisations.
We continue to build on our commitment to client service after we became the first UK law firm to be awarded a three star rating by Investor in Customers. We hold the Law Society's Lexcel Practice Management Standard, were reaccredited with the ISO270001:2013 accreditation, entered the top 50 UK law firm rankings for the first time in the annual league tables published by The Lawyer and were formally recognised by the MPF as ‘Best Managed National Firm’ in 2016.
We have delivered consecutive organic growth over the last seven years which is a testament to a successful sector strategy, our commitment to invest in people and infrastructure and an ability to develop long term client relationships based on trust and a true partnership approach.
We attract talent from across the country whilst retaining a supportive, flexible and progressive working environment. Our people are the key to our success and we have a track record of attracting and retaining the best.
We are looking for talented law and non-law graduates who are commercially minded and can bring with them enthusiasm, tenacity, commitment and a passion for delivering exceptional client service combined with a flexible and friendly attitude.
