Like all law firms we’re only as good as our people. So, when it comes to recruitment we look for talent, commitment and imagination but also something extra. Potential. To join, you’ll need to be very good, but we want you to be great. So that we both get the most out of your employment, we put a lot of effort into selecting people who will rise to the top and then we give them the support and resources to do just that.

We recognise that our people have lives outside work. That’s why we have developed a series of family-friendly policies and benefits to help you maintain that healthy balance.
