Work Life and Culture

Who are we?

We are a people business - from caring about the people we hire to caring for the people who hire us.

The people who support our top class lawyers are, in many ways, the backbone of the firm. We set high standards in service quality and pride ourselves on being enthusiastic, approachable, and easy to do business with.

Our success is not based solely on our high standards of professional expertise and legal skill, although we wouldn't be where we are now without those as standard. What really sets us apart is the way we do business and the time and care we put into building strong relationships.

We are team players with great technical skills. Enthusiastic, flexible, approachable, driven, hardworking, passionate. We have the highest standards of ethics and professionalism.

What sets us apart?

We're not the biggest firm, but our aim is to be the best. Best for clients, best for staff and best for the communities in which we operate. And we don't just want to be a great law firm, we want to be a great firm by any standards.

As a firm we never stand still. We have consistently challenged the status quo to find simpler, faster and smarter ways to help those we work with reach their full potential. And we always look to measure our success from our clients' perspective. Sure, we continue to win more awards every year, both as a firm and for our individual lawyers, but, ultimately, it's what our clients think about us that's important.

Our values are at the centre of everything we do

We Are Easy To Do Business With

Our success is not based solely on our high standards of professional expertise and legal skill, although we wouldn't be where we are now without those as standard.

What really sets us apart is the way we do business and the time and care we put into building strong relationships.

We Never Stand Still

We are a people business - from caring about the people we hire to caring for the people who hire us.

Everyone Has A Voice

We're not what you expect. Come and hear it first hand from our staff.

We Are Bold

We don't shy away from doing things differently. We encourage and support our people to get involved with charity work, community events and letting their hair down, because we know there's more to life than work.

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 and supportive environment.

We are 'One Firm'

Our integral 'one firm' attitude allows our people to regularly work across different teams, departments and jurisdictions. So, not only do our clients benefit from this breadth of knowledge and experience, but our people enjoy a diverse and challenging environment, everyday. We might be international firm now, and we will still continue to grow, but we will always ensure that we take a hands-on approach to everything we do. This is what our clients should expect from us.

It's easy to say these things, but at Collas Crill we genuinely believe it and know that it is what sets us apart.

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

Everyone has the opportunity to develop their skills through quality work opportunities, supported by professional training delivered in-house or by external providers, mentoring and support.

We look for entrepreneurs. Not shrinking violets or wall flowers. 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 deliver constructive and realistic solutions to our clients.

Collas Crill is a flexible company, encouraging staff to develop their careers in the way that suits them best.
