Life at Bristows

Who are we, how do we work and what makes us tick?

Focus on quality

Our lack of billing targets is one of the big differences between us and other firms. As we see it, everyone’s better off without them, because rather than being under pressure to make money at all costs, our lawyers are free to add value at every turn.


Flexible working

Around 10% of our staff are employed on a flexible wokring basis. The enei (Employers Network for Equality and Inclusion) awards “celebrated those with a commitment to good practice above and beyond legal compliance and innovative approaches that will inspire other employers”.


Size and scope

We're by no means the biggest players in the City, but our ambition burns more fiercely than most. It’s one of the reasons we’re able to handle the sort of work you’d normally associate with only the largest firms.


Breadth of experience

Our lawyers’ life experiences add a new dimension to our legal expertise. A number of them can draw on deep specialist knowledge, gained before they turned to the law. Within our ranks, we can boast former immunologists, geneticists, zoologists, criminologists and scholars in German literature, to name just a few.


Culture and support

We got given the opportunity to participate in Tour de Law in support of Breast Cancer Care, so we quite literally got on our bikes – well, watt bikes. All levels of staff (and ability!) took to the bikes competing in real-time against law firms across the country.


Relationships that last

Yes, our people sometimes move on - but it takes them on average seven years to do so. And in many cases, they don’t think much of life after Bristows and make their way back to us, itch scratched and raring to go again.
