It's important to us that our legal expertise is supported by genuine in-house insight and strategic understanding.

Because so many of our specialists have joined us from in-house roles, we recognise the day-to-day challenges you face. We want to help you do business better.

With some of the largest specialist legal teams operating across the country we’re proud that so many of our experts have joined us from in-house roles. This means we have an understanding of the pressures and challenges you face and the increasing responsibilities being placed upon you and your team.

This insight has enabled us to create an events series designed to make in-house life easier. Offering a range of events from CPD accredited training to informal networking, we can help you to work more efficiently, gain new skills, and share knowledge and experience with peers within your own and different sectors.

Our Informed Counsel programme also delivers a monthly e-newsletter, plus personal and professional development opportunities designed to get you the solutions you want and need.

Through this programme we provide a direct route into our lawyers’ expertise - we can help ensure you and your team are up to date with the very latest legal, regulatory, and practice developments and advise on the likely impact on your business, sector and industry, as well as assisting you with your own personal and career development.

We work hard to stand out from the crowd. Delivering a client experience that can’t be beaten relies on a genuine understanding of your business, your sector and the challenges you face.
