What's to like about our client?

In our experience with this national firm, we've seen the Managing Director rapidly grow the firm's clients and staff. The firm has acquired a number of high-calibre clients recently which is a testament to its continued growth. What we've seen from this client that we like, is:

  • The firm has no billable hours and will not assess lawyers on their financial performance.
  • The firm has no WFH limit - you can choose your days in the office and your days at home.
  • The First 'interview' is a coffee catch-up, whether by Teams or in-person which provides a more relaxed setting for you to find out more about the firm.
  • Strong performance during COVID lockdowns and continues to do well.
