We’re a national law firm with a local reach. Our philosophy is ‘Expert Hand, Human Touch’ – something you’ll find in the way we work with our clients and how we support our teams. But, we’re more than just a law firm – we’re a team, working together to help individuals and businesses navigate life’s ups and downs.
Whichever team you join, working here you’ll feel a part of our friendly and inclusive environment. We’ll value you for who you are and what you bring. We support each other and push boundaries to achieve incredible things, and make a real difference to our clients and communities.
The work we do has been recognised in the awards we’ve won. We’re committed to being even better, and our awards help to show we’re on the right track.
We recognise that the office 9-5 isn’t for everyone. That’s why we’ve introduced ‘Flexible by Choice’. Whether it’s working from home, in our offices, or a combination of the both, we trust each other to support our clients, colleagues and communities at the right time, in the right way.
Our experienced Planning and Environmental team has a strong track record for providing the very best legal advice across a range of planning and environmental issues. It is nationally recognised in both Chambers and Partners, Legal 500 and the Planning Magazine’s top planning practices. The team have considerable experience across a range of sectors, most notably in the development – commercial, residential and retirement living, education retail, logistics, manufacturing and waste management sectors.
The members of the team are regular contributors to various national publications such as EG, Property Week, Planning Magazine and ENDS Report.
