When selecting trainees we certainly

look beyond their academic record.

This is a people business and we work

together in teams, sometimes under

considerable pressure for lengthy

periods. We need individuals with

energy and spark who can relate to

those around them. We like common

sense, integrity and drive. We like

people who have an interesting take

on things and who have a range of

interests outside law. This is reflected

in our responsible business strategy,

including our approach to investing

in our local community and reducing

our carbon footprint. We like people

with resolve who are able to show

grit under pressure. We also like an

awareness of the business world

and backdrop, because this is key for

our clients.

Best of all for helping clients,

confounding the opposition and

managing the pressure? A sense of

humour. Try surviving without one.

We aim to employ the brightest

minds regardless of what or where

they studied. We benefit from

talented people who think differently

and we strive to ensure that people

feel comfortable about being

themselves at work.

Strength from individuality

Our people

make the difference

We can talk about philosophies, systems and differences,

but only one thing truly makes us who we are, and

that's our people. We value individuality and diversity

very highly - different perspectives are crucial when

it comes to providing innovative advice. But there are

shared qualities that help bind us together.

You don't need to have studied law

to join us. About half of the trainee

solicitors we recruit studied law as

undergraduates. Among us you will

find historians, biologists, linguists,

psychologists, chemists, musicians

and many others.

Diversity of thought, perspective

and experience is invaluable in

providing creative and cutting-edge

advice to our clients, and it also

fosters an open-minded and varied

work environment. We believe that

it is our ability to build collaborative

and diverse teams that helps us

to succeed. This forms part of our

commitment to forge a responsible

business for the future through

positive social and environmental

impacts, both internally

and externally.
