Lawyers at Russell-Cooke have the opportunity to work with leaders in their field on high quality, challenging work for established and loyal clients, providing creative and commercial solutions. They are trusted with responsibility and independence, and given the opportunity and choices to develop their own practice.
It is unusual for a firm to be so large with such a breadth of practice, and our lawyers find the variety of clients and colleagues, as well as the culture and opportunities this produces very rewarding.
The working environment is stimulating and dynamic within a wider culture that is friendly and informal. Whilst expectations are high, the hours and targets are reasonable: we recognise the value of our staff having a healthy work/life balance, and the benefit to the firm of well-rounded employees with outside interests.
The breadth of practice means we attract lawyers from vastly different backgrounds:
Those with a commercial background in a larger firm find the opportunity to broaden their experience, find their own strengths and develop their own judgment very rewarding.
Those from smaller practices value the quality of the work and clients, the opportunity for career development, the financial security and the support provided by a good infrastructure.
