“When the Director of HR approached me about returning to work, it coincided with me being very much ready to restart my career.

I was pleasantly surprised by how flexible she was about me working part-time and with some of those days being from home. I was offered the opportunity to join the Financial Institutions Group and I will admit to a degree of scepticism about becoming an advisory lawyer, having been a litigator.  However, I felt it would be good experience and I was told the team was particularly supportive of working mothers. As it happens, I very much enjoy being a non-contentious lawyer so any scepticism I had has ebbed away. 

People here want you to achieve your full potential as that makes the firm succeed as a whole. They are genuine people who are not out to run you down in order to progress their careers. That mentality creates a pretty unique culture and one which I really enjoy being part of.”


We offer one of the most comprehensive legal networks in the UK, with 11 offices across England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland. We have a strong presence globally too, with offices, associations and alliances everywhere from Malaysia to Mexico, Argentina to Australia.
