Work Life and Culture

Who are we?

We are a people business 

Our success is not just based on our high standards of professional expertise, ethics and legal skill. It is also down to the way we do business and the time and care we put into building strong relationships.

Whatever our role, we are team players with great technical skills, enthusiasm, flexibility and drive. We strive to deliver exceptional service to clients and colleagues every day.

What sets us apart?

We're not the biggest offshore firm but our aim is to be the best.

Best for clients, best for our people and best for the communities in which we operate.

As a firm we never stand still and we always look to measure our success from our clients' perspective. While we continue to win more awards every year, ultimately it's what our clients think about us that matters.

Our 'one firm' attitude allows our people to work across different teams, departments and jurisdictions. Not only do our clients benefit from this breadth of knowledge and experience, our people enjoy a diverse and challenging environment too.

We also encourage and support our people to get involved with charity work, community and social events because achieving a good balance benefits everyone: our clients, our communities, our colleagues and their families.

Our approach to work is underpinned by our purpose, our values and the way we do business from day to day.

Our values are at the centre of everything we do


We Are Easy To Do Business With

Our aim is to make life easier for our clients, offering a flexible approach that puts their needs first. The Collas Crill passport (known internally as 'the little pink book') helps outline how we do this from day to day – view our animation to find out more.

We Never Stand Still

We challenge the status quo to find better and smarter ways to achieve our objectives. Our priority is to get the right outcome for our clients.

Everyone Has A Voice

As a firm, we listen, we connect and we understand to get the job done. We recognise the skills, expertise and experience each of us brings to the firm and combine our strengths to deliver for our clients.

We're not what you expect – come and hear it first-hand from our people.

We Are Bold

We don't shy away from doing things differently to get better results. We won't sit on the fence because we know our clients expect more than that. We're on their team.

We Love What We Do

And we think you'd love it too. We're always growing - which means we're always on the look out for hungry, talented individuals who want to further their career in a forward-thinking business.

The training and development of our people is key to our success

Collas Crill is a flexible company, encouraging our people to develop their careers in the way that suits them best, whether through on-the-job opportunities, mentoring, professional training delivered in-house or by external providers, or other support.

We look for entrepreneurs, not shrinking violets. We inspire our lawyers to be proactive, build relationships and develop their own business. From trainee to partner, if you have the motivation, drive and ability to engage clients, we'll encourage and support you every step of the way.

We want you to develop and share your ideas. This ensures that we foster an innovative and collaborative working environment that delivers constructive and realistic solutions to our clients.
