The Firm

With over 6000 lawyers in over 100 offices internationally, this firm is regarded as one of the largest law firms in the world. Their presence in the UK is growing, with the hire of some of the most sought-after lawyers in the industry, they now house over 400 fee earners in the UK, 120 of them being ranked in Chambers.

This firm has won award after award and is recognised around the globe for providing an outstanding service, throughout their departments. The firm always strives to exceed the expectations of its clients, which include some of the most well-known house hold names internationally. It provides them with the highest quality advice and legal insight, which combines the firm's global standards with in-depth local expertise.

Their culture is one of positivity, enthusiasm and focused around the people that work there. They nurture legal talent and provide a career structure which is based on merit, without the usual confusing application process and box-ticking exercise, there are no glass ceilings here at all, with no earning limits and pointless pay grades which reward on a level of experience rather than taking into account the individual and the value they add to the firm.

As an experienced Recruiter, upon getting to know the firm, I feel they are truly unique, and I find their story, vision, and ways of working refreshing. They have room and continued plans to continue to grow, although they set the benchmark understandably high hiring people that do not only fit technically, cultural fit being of the utmost importance. What stood out to me, is their positive, friendly and team orientated approach.
