Yes, we’re a law firm. But beyond the glass doors, qualifications and awards are people like you.
Have a look around and you’ll find that we can advise on a broad range of legal matters. Get to know us and you’ll find that we’re more than just problem solvers. We’re enthusiastic and fervent about what we do, who we work with and what we work on. The Michelmores approach is to look at the world through your eyes. The more we understand you and your world, the more we can do for you.
Putting ourselves in your shoes
Why are our key players all recognised authorities in their sectors? Simple. We encourage them to put themselves squarely in your shoes. To adopt your viewpoint. To get it. Whatever your 'it' happens to be. Understanding you, your needs, your perspective, comprehending and delving into every facet of the challenge you bring us. All in the service of providing a 'best in class' solution. Driven, curious, highly-talented professionals of pertinent expertise and experience, offering a wide range of services, to give you the very best legal advice.
Success as a team
With a total complement of over 400: Lawyers, professional advisers, paralegals and business services staff in London, Bristol and Exeter, we believe we've got one of the best legal teams in the country. But perhaps it's worth remembering, that as well as being Lawyers, we're also people. People who understand the commercial world in which you live, and the speed at which business operates. Been there, done that. And sometimes, we've even got the T-shirt. Which is what makes us especially qualified to put the right team together for you.
We have some of the best-connected Lawyers in the business. Bar none. Why, and how does that help you? Well, it means that aside from legal advice, we'll be thinking of all the angles, and coming up with other business connections for you to talk to. What's more, as one of the most active law firms in the country in social media, we're always on the case in terms of listening to what is going on, monitoring changes to legislation, breaking news relevant to your industry, and extending our network of influence and reputation to develop new relationships and insights on your behalf.
Michelmores welcomed the early adoption of binding commitments to carbon reduction when the Climate Change Act became law in 2008. Since then, we have assisted many clients whose activities are central to the achievement of the progressive targets, which were upgraded in 2019 to a commitment to 'net zero' by 2050. That's a goal we wholeheartedly share but, as a business, we are committed to being much more ambitious. We aspire to reach net zero by 2030.
Our current performance is published in our annual accounts. We are working with Planet Mark and will be publishing more detail of new plans and targets soon (before the end of 2022). This will go beyond carbon reduction and will cover other aspects of our environmental and social objectives.
Giving something back
In essence, this is our commitment to corporate social responsibility. CSR isn't just a 'tick box' exercise for us. It's opportunity to engage with our local communities; a framework for our environmental responsibilities; and one of the ways in which we help to foster a well-rounded and happy workforce.
