This is a leading law firm with a solid reputation for providing first-class legal advice, high calibre yet approachable lawyers and exceptional client care to local, national and international clients.

Highly ranked in several tiers of the Legal 500 and regarded as one of the best practices in Cheltenham. This law firm is worth consideration for candidates looking for practice with high quality work in Gloucestershire.

The Firm

The firm employs around 75 people at their offices in Cheltenham and they provide a friendly and supportive working environment.

They are great at nurturing their talent and progressing their employers in their chosen field, making them the best lawyers they could possibly be. They have a completely open-door policy with Partners seated throughout the open plan office with much more junior staff; this even applies to the CEO.

You will find there is no hierarchy with even Paralegals being encouraged to share their thoughts. Just recently a Paralegal undertook a training session for a whole team including Partner; it is this collaborative approach which has seen them progress Solicitors to Partners in a record-breaking time.
