Heartfelt messages from Clarion's joint managing partner Roger Hutton inspired trust in the commercial law firm's leadership over the past 18 months. His unscripted Friday-night emails exposed his own vulnerability and resonated with staff at a difficult time. Hutton's words reflected the culture of authenticity that is embodied in the firm.

It was created in 2007, when a management buyout of a successful Leeds law firm took place. Clarion works with a range of businesses, from start-ups to FTSE 100 companies. The firm places importance on a joined-up team approach and its success rely on creating strong partnerships that generate energy and deliver results.

In The Lawyer magazine's UK 200 report of 2020, it was listed as one of the top five fastest-growing law firms in the UK.

Its 280-strong staff includes 30 partners and the firm has ambitious plans for future growth. Clarion's award-winning culture is one of teamwork, transparency and authenticity, and it does all it can to ensure its people are well looked after, have rewarding and fulfilling careers and enjoy coming to work.

Its core values and purpose underpin the way staff works together and what they stand for, known as BeingClarion. The firm's people and clients define it and it continues to listen to them every step of the way.

"Clarion is a pretty special place to work; our people are an incredibly talented bunch who enjoy working together and delivering outstanding client service," says Hutton.

Quote from the top...
Clarion is a pretty special place to work; our people are an incredibly talented bunch who enjoy working together and delivering outstanding client service and that is only possible to maintain by ensuring we continually focus on, and invest in, all aspects of the employee experience and ensure our special culture is a central focus of what we do every day. The 'BeingClarion' cultural focus is key to our ethos of doing things differently and we are proud of what we have achieved with our high levels of employee engagement, but we don't take any of it for granted and are continually striving to improve and ensure our people are supported in all aspects of their lives and continue to be engaged with the business.

Roger Hutton, Joint Managing Partner - Clarion
