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. The firm is multi-award-winning and are the innovative law firm of choice. They have grown year on year for the last decade, they punch well above their weight and only recently they received industry press for Corporate deals on par with the very elite of City firms. There is a forward-thinking, modern and progressive feel throughout the firm; they have an unheard-of staff retention rate compared to that of their similar sized counterparts.
