The firm isn't a typical Private Practice firm. It is a very unique set up and they are really growing in the market and have done over the last couple of years.

The firm is the first professional services business in the UK legal sector and has attracted private equity investment. The sustainable business model means the firm is able to invest in cutting edge technology and high quality recruits, enabling them to compare to major city firms.

A lot of the work is sector-specific such as retail, healthcare, education, financial services etc.

The team works alongside the commercial team which consists of 6 people. Plenty of support is offered where needed.

The team works with a wide range of clients nationally from niche OMBs through to SMEs and PLCs.
