We’re proud to have a strong sense of community spirit. Our tagline about being “built around you” isn’t just a throwaway slogan, it’s something we believe in — whether it’s towards clients or our own colleagues.

“Thursfields is the first firm where I’ve felt they are committed to your growth, and there is a lot of support available. If you are not quite ready for the next step, you are guided on what you need to do to get there.

Thursfields has a one team ethos, always working together and thinking of each other in all we do, from Mental Health First Aid, Support Groups, ED&I committee, and the Junior Law Committee – you can be part of as much of this as you would like.”
