Company Information

BREXIT, EMPLOYMENT LAW and data protection are just a few of the red-hot issues that solicitor Kingsley Napley got to grips with in the past year. Keeping their fingers on the pulse means staff at this London law firm do not feel bored at work, a 76% positive score, and are proud to work here (89%, ranking eighth).

A walking group meets every Friday lunchtime, and yoga, meditation and choir sessions are all available. Staff can also opt to learn a foreign language or a musical instrument, with lessons paid for by the business as part of its wellbeing strategy.

The company has a pro bono team that last year began working with migrants in Calais. Every two years, the workforce chooses charities to support: the current beneficiaries are WellChild, which helps sick children and their families, and Groundswell, a homelessness project. More than £50,000 was raised for good causes in 2016 and the belief that this enterprise is run on strong values and principles (85%) is widely held.

Managing partner Linda Woolley aims to lead by example, with honesty and transparency, and she welcomes feedback. “She has integrity, is a great mentor... and she treats every level of staff with the same respect,” said one employee. She is seen as a source of inspiration (81%).
