How We Work

Collaboration and teamwork are central to our success. Our lawyers have access to high-quality work and clients, whatever their base office location, and wherever they choose to work.

Our three base offices are Bristol, Exeter and London, with satellite offices in Cheltenham and Sidmouth. Everyone chooses a base office, where they spend time with their team when work activities or client needs require "in office" working. When "in office" working isn't needed, people have the choice to work remotely, whether that is at home or elsewhere. A guiding principle is that everyone spends time working both "in office" and remotely, to maximise the benefits of both ways of working. We trust our people to choose the best way to organise their work, whilst continuing to deliver exceptional client service.

All of our trainees are South West based and have the opportunity to spend time in all 3 offices. There is also a dedicated London secondment for those interested. Our Graduate Recruitment team meets with each trainee during their training contract to discuss their base office preferences and the seat rotation process.

From our Exeter office we provide training opportunities across a full service of practice areas. The 50,000 square foot office offers an open plan working environment, an on-site gym, subsidised cafe and free parking. It is easily accessible from the M5.

Our Bristol office is fully agile, with hot desks and collaborative spaces. It is in the heart of the city, by the river at Broad Quay, and its central location makes it a great place for lunches out and socialising after work.

Our London office is located in New Street Square and is part of the capital's vibrant legal district. Our London office plays a vital role in our growth strategy and is used as a drop in and meeting place by our national and international clients. Colleagues from Bristol and Exeter often work out of our London office.
