Firm description and career prospects
Foot Anstey is a leading regional law firm. Through a network of five offices across the South West plus our newly opened London and Southampton offices, we work as one national team offering specialist legal advice and services to regional, national and international clients, both businesses and individuals. We pride ourselves on offering premium services, delivered by recognised experts in their field. Our approach is flexible and client-focused. The advice which we give is personal, practical and cost effective.
We are among the UK’s top 100 law firms, with just under 50 partners and around 500 staff. We have achieved consistent growth and strong financial performance despite a challenging economic environment. We like to think that our approach to business and developing client relationships makes us distinctly different to traditional law firms – and also attractive. As does our desire to ensure our lawyers and trainees operate in an environment where everything is tailored towards delivering specialist and forward thinking advice to our clients. Whatever the reason you want to join us, we promise you a progressive working environment. We can offer you an open and supportive culture that is committed to ensuring you realise your maximum potential. We will invest in you, train you and value you. We have received high profile recognition for our culture and strategy. We have been listed as ‘One to Watch’ for the 'Sunday Times Best 100 Companies to Work For' and shortlisted for ‘Best Strategic Leadership’ at the Managing Partner Forum Awards.
