Firm description and career prospects
Cripps Pemberton Greenish is one of the country’s leading legal practices serving corporate, real estate and private clients. With offices in Kent and London, the firm offers a flexible team of more than 450 people to deliver exceptional service to its clients. The firm builds, equips and continuously strengthens its teams, investing in the best talent and technology to deliver this service.
By making ‘how we do it’ as important as ‘what we do’ Cripps Pemberton Greenish has built a unique culture and capability designed around our clients’ needs. Our lawyers, who genuinely care about what they do, have the imagination to provide new perspectives to achieve the best outcomes for clients and want to make the client-adviser experience as enjoyable as possible. Whether acting for a real estate investor, a fast-growing business or a private individual, the approach is the same – making their objectives our own, and getting them to where they need to be at a pace they set. Internationally, the firm has a strong network of trusted legal advisers to support clients with cross-border interests.

Businesses and organisations: The award-winning corporate team supports many of the UK’s most exciting businesses from innovative start-ups to global brands. Dedicated teams advise on mergers, acquisitions and disposals, corporate finance, corporate tax, employment and HR services, commercial contracts, and commercial dispute resolution. Typical clients range from entrepreneurial businesses to international companies who need a personal, flexible service coupled with astute commercial advice. In 2019, the team won Corporate Team of the Year at the Southeast Dealmaker Awards and were recognised in The Times Best Law Firm Guide.
Business owners: The firm’s unusual combination of private client and commercial capabilities are of considerable advantage to business owners whose personal and business needs overlap.

It helps people to maximise their assets and makes their lives easier by taking the burden out of managing their personal affairs, in particular on complex trust and tax issues.
