We operate in a competitive service industry and our aim is to provide the highest levels of service in a timely, proactive and astute manner. We are nothing without our teams.

Each person in the team has a very different role to play. We operate a meritocracy. Consequently members of the team who show dedication, ability, and performance, can and will progress to the highest levels.

The legal environment is changing fast and technology plays a huge role. We need bold individuals who can anticipate, plan and adapt to such changes across the legal, social and cultural spheres. Creative thinkers who can revolutionise the way we work are the future of our business.

Heads of Department

Each of our Heads of Department has a proven track record of being a successful lawyer and team leader. They are responsible for managing their teams, client relationships and business development.

Their strengths and qualities include leadership skills, wisdom and maturity of thought and judgment, being highly respected based upon a strong reputation, being a team player and being commercially aware and astute. They are skilled in business development, entrepreneurship, marketing and management of clients, people, finances and risk.

Directors

Each of our Directors also has a track record as a successful lawyer, client and people manager and committed team player.

They are also able to demonstrate good business development and marketing skills, client retention and management skills, entrepreneurial skills and a proven ability to train, supervise and manage other lawyers and support staff.

Associates / Senior Solicitors

These are the front-line lawyers that our Heads of Department and Directors depend upon to deliver a first class legal service.

They have the knowledge, skill and ability to undertake their legal work and manage projects both individually and as part of a team. Our Associates are potentially the future Directors and leaders of the Firm.

Junior Solicitors

Our solicitors work closely with our Heads of Department, Directors, Associates and other team members to deliver our services. They are the main point of day-to-day contact with clients and are responsible for keeping matters progressing smoothly.

They have the benefit of being trained and working alongside our senior lawyers and we would expect them to progress to such levels as the firm grows and they grow.

Trainee Solicitors

Trainees are based in our Harrow office working alongside lawyers across our departments.

Trainees will have the opportunity to work in at least 3 of the firm’s specialist areas of law and also have an opportunity to be exposed to other departments.

At this stage in their careers, we do expect trainees not only to experience as wide a variety of work as possible, but also contribute to delivering legal services. They are essential team members.

Paralegals

We have a number of paralegals in various practice areas in the business. Our paralegals provide an integral role in supporting our qualified lawyers and they, in turn, gain great exposure and a wide range of responsibilities. Whether you are a career paralegal or an aspiring lawyer, you will get to work with our lawyers on interesting cases across a broad range of areas.

Generally, paralegals who have proven themselves to be capable and competent will be offered and will progress to a training contract.

Other Professionals in our Firm

We must not ignore the wealth of talent we have in those who are not lawyers, but are integral to the firm and who may have other professional qualifications and experience such as in finance, management, consultancy, compliance, marketing, business development, IT and administrative support.

We develop clear career options for such professionals, recognising the valuable contribution they bring to the firm.
