Meet our people

Withers exists to help our clients succeed, and we can only do that by supporting our people, and providing interesting and rewarding career opportunities.

We want to be the best, and we work hard to keep improving. But that doesn’t mean living at the office. We’ve found that we perform best when we work flexibly around our clients’ needs and our own.

Ours is a collaborative, inclusive culture where everyone can flourish. We look to attract and develop people with wide-ranging backgrounds and skillsets. It’s the only way for us to keep pace with change.

“I worked on a variety of matters from the get-go. You’re a valued member of the team, involved in most aspects of client work. The people here are what makes the firm an incredible place to train and work, I have always felt supported and guided by partners and other fee earners. I was in my first seat when Covid-19 hit which was daunting, but the firm made sure that we were properly supervised and supported throughout, and  the small intake of trainees meant we also had a great peer support network.”
