This firm has a different approach to the traditional private practice model. They have a fluid team structure allowing their partners to fee-earn, business develop and build their practice to its maximum potential.
They have experienced huge growth in recent years, with the hire of some of the industries most talented and well-respected Lawyers. They have a heritage spanning over 200 years, built on solid foundations, however, what they have achieved in the last ten years is extremely impressive and unheard of. will find a strong management team which has invested in systems which have allowed staff to become streamlined and have several accolades as a result.
Their culture is one of positivity, enthusiasm and focused around the people that work there. They nurture legal talent and provide a career structure which is based on merit, without the usual confusing application process and box-ticking exercise, there are no glass ceilings here at all, with no earning limits and pointless pay grades which reward on a level of experience rather than taking into account the individual and the value they add to the firm.
I feel they are truly unique, and I find their story, vision, and ways of working refreshing. They have room and continued plans to continue to grow, although they set the benchmark understandably high hiring people that do not only fit technically, cultural fit being of the utmost importance. What stood out to me, is their positive, friendly and team orientated approach.
