Our governance structure strikes a balance between ensuring our Partners are engaged and being able to make good, quick decisions.  

Our Board comprises an independent professional director who has extensive expertise outside the legal industry, Partners from each of our 4 offices and our Chief Executive. Board meetings are held throughout our network.  

Our practice groups and industry sectors operate on a national basis and our structure incentivises the sharing of work. This ensures that all client work is carried out by the most appropriately qualified person or team.

Our Chief Executive is supported by our management team responsible for all aspects of the firm's operations including Business Development, Human Resources, Knowledge, Information Technology and Finance.
