Join Us

At SE-Solicitors, we are not your typical high end law firm; we place our people first in everything we do. Our dedicated commitment to the welfare of our team has been recognised by the LPM People and Engagement Awards, in which we were finalists. We are always looking towards the future, developing our business strategy around our people and welcoming their contribution to our vision.

Located near the gateway to the Cotswolds, we are surrounded by countryside rather than in a large city. Our geographical position and quality of work has and continues to attract highly qualified city lawyers to the firm.

It is not just our location and commitment to our people that make us stand out as a firm, it is also the high level of interesting and complex work that we undertake which derives from having an impressive and wide-ranging client base.

With SE-Solicitors, you will have the opportunity to work on matters that will challenge you and be very rewarding, whether you are at the start of your legal career or 15 years in. We will empower and fully support you to take ownership of your work, to develop your career and to contribute ideas for continually improving the quality of our services for clients.

It comes as no surprise to us that our staff engagement and retention rates are a great deal higher than the average for the legal sector.

As a firm, we are always looking to build for the future, to support our commitment to sustainability, local charities and to our community. We welcome applications from talented and driven legal professionals who share our values and are interested in joining a growing and dynamic law firm.
