Supporting our clients at this time

As the situation with coronavirus (COVID-19) develops, we want to do all we can to ensure the safety of our people, our clients, and their families while still offering an uninterrupted and full service to our clients.

We are continuing to follow government advice regarding remote and socially distanced working, and we are currently holding client meetings and events online and/or by phone where possible.

You can find out more about how we are tackling the impact of Covid-19 on our employees, our clients, and our communities here.

Our Culture

One of the things that enables us to think differently is our culture. We have a great culture and, time and time again, it’s acknowledged as being outstanding. And what’s great about that is it brings and keeps the best people working for us – plus, it attracts innovative and approachable clients, who think like us. Our culture is fundamental to our success. So we cherish and protect it, we live by our values and reward the behaviours that support them. And our clients value this as much as our people. For us, stuffy stereotypes and fussy formality have been left in the past – where they belong. We push forward because we don’t have time for rigid hierarchies and inflated egos, but we make time for energy and ambition. And let’s not forget a big part of being the law firm of the future is reflecting the changing world around us. So we’re committed to welcoming diversity, promoting innovation and celebrating success.
