Our culture


We're proud of our heritage, but we've always looked to the future.

DE / EN / ES / FR / IT

We were founded as a law firm in the UK way back in 1748. We’ve been around for over 250 years, and we’re very  proud of our heritage, but we’ve always looked to the future.

That’s probably why our culture is so different from other law firms; why we’ve stepped away from stereotypes and been brave enough to break moulds.

And our people and our clients tell us it’s a big part of what they like about us. They tell us time and time again that our culture is the reason we’re approachable, knowledgeable;, experienced and straightforward.  What’s more we think it leads to us being courageous enough to seek out new ways of delivering value, expertise and insights to our clients.
