A place where people feel free to be themselves, is what law firm BDB Pitmans aims to be. It says: "Regardless of their position, we treat everyone fairly, encouraging our teams to be confident and express opinions in an honest and trusting environment.

"We show care, respect and concern for each other and who we work with. Actively promoting a healthy worklife balance, and giving employees the necessary tools to help them achieve this."

BDB Pitmans was founded in 2018, but it draws on more than 300 years of expertise after a merger between two long-established firms. Many of its lawyers and advisers are recognised leaders in their practice areas.

The firm recognises that success and market recognition is based on much more than knowledge and understanding of the law, which is why it is committed to investing in the career development and growth of its staff. Training is provided to enable each person to optimise their performance, work effectively as part of a team and deliver quality service to clients.

That flows from the top — all legal directors and associates take a ‚"courageous leadership" course, which explores the challenges of working in a leadership role within a law firm and the importance of managing yourself first, before attempting to manage others. It provides opportunities to work alongside unfamiliar colleagues to build company-wide networks. For all staff, technical training specific to areas of expertise is delivered in-house and additional external training is provided when required.
