Napthens, which provides legal services to businesses and individuals, says its strength is in its relationships – whether working with colleagues, clients, or the wider community. Collaboration is at the heart of everything it does. Staff gain knowledge and experience through working with others so the firm's talented people deliver the best possible outcomes for clients.

Staff listen and take the time to get to understand clients and what they want to achieve, so they can deliver a personalised, tailored service. The firm's aim is to be a trusted adviser to its clients and, with strength in depth across its services, it ensures they get the help and advice they need from specialists in their field.

To attract and retain staff Napthens offers a generous holiday policy, and people are encouraged to take breaks throughout the year. The firm also creates opportunities for workers to get together during work hours or outside of work to share experiences and have a good time together.

It has realistic chargeable-hours targets and ensures that employees are not working consistently long hours. Workshops and activities that relate to the issues experienced within the firm are offered.

Structured into specialist departments, the firm has around 255 staff, including 26 partners, and operates from offices across the North-West. Its Lancashire team is based in Preston, Blackburn and on the Fylde coast, the Kendal office serves clients across Cumbria and in Merseyside and there are offices in Southport and Liverpool.

Quote from the top...
Napthens strength undoubtedly comes from its people. I’ve been lucky enough to work with the firm previously as a client, and the level of service, access to partners and the willingness of every team member, no matter their seniority, to get stuck in really stayed with me. This willingness to work together and the firm's culture is something that really sets Napthens apart. The firm has huge potential, an incredible pool of talent, clear growth ambitions and a well-established client base which has been nurtured over many years.
