Private Client Solicitor – 2PQE. Hybrid. c60K+Profit Share – 18727 Ref: 18727

We do things a bit differently at Hedges (back to that in a mo).

We understand that as a Private Client Solicitor / Lawyer you are likely to be ‘comfortable’ in your current law firm and content with that. In which case, feel free to click out of this now.


We also understand what motivates Private Client Solicitors and we know there are so many of you out there who are Undervalued, Not Appreciated, Deflated & De-Motivated by low-value work, low fixed-fees that are imposed on you, archaic practices, out-dated management, slow IT & even slower career progression. And you’re precisely who should read on now…

At Hedges our people are:

// Empowered (everyone really does have a voice)
// Valued
// Challenged by high-quality work for HNW clients
// Set-off at the right pace
// Nurtured and developed
// Accelerated (faster career progression)
// Paid what they are worth

And this is because at Hedges we are EMPLOYEE-OWNED – we were only the 5th firm in the country to join this highly-exclusive club.

Fancy a confidential coffee and chat (virtually)?

Ok, back to being different…

We may have a 235-year heritage as a Private Client Legal Practice, but that doesn't mean we're a stale, dull & oppressive law firm like so many others. No chance.

Whilst we love and embrace our heritage and history, we’ve evolved this firm with the times to become a truly 21st century business: making it our job to innovate, excite, and ensure that when future generations look at our pictures lining the wall, not only can they see what a terrific, friendly bunch we are, BUT that we were also the 'dream team', the mavericks, the leaders in the field, the game-changers: those who kept moving Hedges forward and relevant, making it one of the most beautifully different law firms of its time.

Word on the street: "City Firm Quality exported to Oxfordshire & The Cotswolds".

// The 5th employee-owned law firm in the UK so you will have a share in the business' success from day one. There's no 'buy-in' and no liability with our innovative trust shareholder structure. It's really special and means the world to our employees.

Last year was our biggest revenue year yet and we have ambitious and exciting plans for the future – there's still so much to do and achieve and we're not happy unless we're pushing boundaries… So, how about you come and be a part of our future and us a part of yours?
