Why You Should Join Us

Our Working Environment and Culture

We understand that our people are our greatest asset and that an investment in them is an investment in the long-term success in our firm.

We also know that when people first join us, they may not have all of the skills necessary to provide the excellent quality of work and service which our clients demand and which we deliver. We offer a comprehensive training programme and international and regional secondments to support the acquisition of these skills.

The diversity of our people means that there is much for us to learn from each other not just at work but also outside the office. Our emphasis on teamwork, collaboration and co-operation promotes the type of work environment that makes it easy for us to choose to spend time with each other outside the office. We hold a number of regular practice group and annual firm events like pool side parties, barbecues and an office party which provide us with the opportunities to get to know each other.
