This is a thriving and engaging business and you will find a vibrant and progressive culture.  Attracting high-calibre lawyers, many of the team have previously worked for national, top Legal 100 law firms. Mindset is as important as legal experience and the business is looking to recruit ambitious and astute lawyers, who are also down to earth and pragmatic in their approach.
