Every firm should be distinctive by virtue of its values – the core principles that govern its internal culture and external market profile. We believe ours – Approachable, Bold, Connected – are fundamental to who we are and all that we are capable of achieving. In the day-to-day world, these values inform and are reflected in everything that we do – in how we approach our work, our clients and each other.
Our values are a living entity – they come out of who we are as people, and as professionals, and how we all want our firm to evolve and grow. That is why we recently invested time, energy and resources in reviewing our core values to arrive at a refined set of values which are right for our firm as we pursue our 2020 vision.
We’re down to earth and approachable and always treat each other with respect. We act with integrity, backing our own judgement and providing pragmatic solutions rather than sitting on the fence. Trust is vital to everything we do.
We are enterprising and willing to rise to the challenge. We strive for success and for excellence in everything we do, driving ourselves to do better. We innovate and think beyond conventions to find lateral solutions.
Our strength comes from our relationships – with others across the firm, with our clients and with our communities. We work in a diverse business and value the different perspectives that brings. We’re committed to working together as one team to deliver the best outcomes for our clients and for the firm.
From your point of view, it means that you can expect to find us welcoming, inclusive and encouraging, not too hung up on hierarchies and happy to help each other however we can. Being a Trainee Solicitor is a tough enough challenge in itself – but when everyone around you is on your side, you’ll find it all becomes just a little easier.
