We focus our activity on specialist sectors where, importantly, we seek to influence debate, policy and practice at a national level. We’re always ahead of the important issues affecting our clients' sectors, and are committed to making a difference, which explains why we work with such dedication and passion – whatever our position in the company.

Our work is centred around seven sectors. In each, we strive to achieve an extraordinary level of expertise and understanding, which allows us to think and act beyond the ordinary legal disciplines.

As a The Lex 100 winner for job satisfaction, client contact, low stress levels, work/life balance and diversity we are a great choice if you’re looking to join an principled firm and want to take the lead on high quality work.

We are committed to helping you develop and succeed as a trainee, and we provide the support and resources to help you achieve your potential. You’ll be allocated an appraiser at the start of your training contract, as well as a trainee manager for each seat. Your appraiser will offer support and guidance about which areas would complement your plans for the future, making sure you gain the necessary experience and skills.

When we asked our trainees why they chose us over other firms, they told us it was because of our excellent client care and because we “have a social conscience and are actually prepared to do something about it”. They also said they were given more hands-on experience and considerably more responsibility than their peers at other firms.
