What we offer

What our employees say

In the last 3 years we have had three lawyers return to working for us having left to go to London/National firms. What is it they like about Prettys:

“Prettys is a great place to work. The firm is very supportive and the work is of a high level. There is a structured career development process and they have a very team focussed approach. This allows the firm to be dynamic and ultimately very successful in what they do. We all get to share in that.”

Vanessa Bell, Senior Associate

“Prettys continues to be a leader of legal services both locally and further afield. It is a brand people and businesses recognise and trust. Prettys’ ethos, values and passion to succeed match my own. Within the firm everyone is friendly, supportive and operates an open door policy. The career path is defined with mentoring used to help develop key skills required for personal development and progression. Everything we do is client focused. We are big enough to cope, but small enough to care; and that approach to client care sets us above our competitors.”

Matthew Clemence, Associate, Collaborative Lawyer and Mediator

We regularly attract lawyers from large City firms:

“The reason I joined Prettys is because they provide high quality work and have a great client base.  It is easily comparable to the work I did with my previous firm. They also offer flexibility and the ability to work from home which allows me to work around my family commitments. This is rare to see in a law firm.”

Laura Pharez-Zea, Associate (previously worked at a large U.S firm in London)
