Firstly it means you will be part of a team ranked in the Legal 500 and noted for “excellent service and extremely valuable market knowledge and business acumen”. Our lawyers are leaders in their fields who enjoy the best of both worlds; working as part of an in-house team whilst having the opportunity to work on a variety of roles and clients. Some of our lawyers have an established network of contacts and clients, some don’t, neither is a prerequisite. We want to hear from driven in-house lawyers who enjoy variety and have proven experience of providing quality commercial and corporate legal support and insights.

Community, support and development are at the heart of our culture.
