Our Values and Culture

At Brethertons we are grateful to have a very positive internal culture.  Our values (detailed below) reflect the way we like to work as a firm. 

Value Our Customers

Our objective is to know our customers, to be attentive to their needs, culture and ambitions, sharing our knowledge and providing the support they need to succeed.

“At Brethertons, I am consistently impressed with the firm and its employees desire to always put the customer first and be supportive to each customer’s different needs.  I am proud to say that I work for a firm that truly works to provide the customer with a tailor made service that fits their situation.  I believe that’s why so many of our customers come back to us over and over”Lindsay Gutteridge, Associate – Private Client

Value Excellence

We aspire to provide the highest levels of service to our customers.  We are enthusiastic and flexible and will go the extra mile to deliver the right results.

“I find it inspiring to hear about the innovative work my colleagues at Brethertons complete.  My colleagues are eager to get the best results for their customers and I work with individuals who are leaders in their fields.  Individuals who already have so much knowledge and yet always striving to be better” Craig Webb, Head of Legal Operations

Value Personal Development

We invest, support and properly reward personal growth of our people so that we may ensure we offer expert knowledge for the benefit of our customers.

“I know Brethertons has recently been named as a Times Top 100 Apprenticeship Employer of the Year.  This is not at all surprising to me – Brethertons has been offering top quality Apprenticeship opportunities for years! Brethertons are eager to recognise talent and hard work, and support individuals development.  I am grateful for the opportunities made available to me – I started at Brethertons as a Paralegal, have been supported through my training contract and am still building on my knowledge as a practicing Solicitor.” – Sian Buxton, Solicitor – Serious Injuries

Value Each Other

We work as a team, supportive and attentive towards each other, sharing our knowledge and creating an environment of empathy, while respecting diversity, individual needs and cultures.

“One of my favourite things about working at Brethertons is the support provided to each other.  Brethertons absolutely encourages team working.  We all work to share our knowledge and support each other, while recognising the importance of each individual’s contribution.” Faruq Kasu, Graduate Member of CILEX

Value Ambition

We are proud of our history, our achievements and our own culture.  But we are also enthusiastic about our Vision for future growth.

"Brethertons has ambition and a clear vision.  That means putting our people and our customers at the heart of everything we do. But ambition by itself is not enough.  We also have the strategy, the structure and the drive to realise our vision.  Collaboration is key and every person in the firm is working together to make our ambition a reality." 
Sally Jones, COO
