Legal Opportunities

If you are a solicitor, or soon to be qualified, and have expertise or experience in our practice areas, we can offer challenging and varied work, friendly and supportive teams, interesting clients, a good work-life balance and flexible working. We want our solicitors to develop their careers and expertise with us, so we offer a variety of training both to develop your technical knowledge and the skills we believe you need to excel as a solicitor.

Our fee earning targets reflect the importance we place on work-life balance, but we also want to reward great performance and have a bonus scheme and promotion structure in place.

Our legal teams are supported by paralegals, administrators and secretaries. These roles are very much part of the team and work closely with our solicitors and partners to deliver client requirements.
