It is common for lawyers from City-based and Top 50 firms to leave in favour of this very practice. This is due to the quality of working being the same but with the added benefits of greater flexibility and a more friendly environment.

You will find a creative, supportive, dynamic, forward-thinking, and progressive culture. They invest heavily in their staff, with industry-leading training and a real platform for progression.
