What our colleagues say...

Jonathan Tyson Partner

"When I was first asked to join Knights, I actually said no! It just seemed too good to be true, but having re-evaluated, I’m now a 4 year ‘veteran’ and I have to say it has exceeded my expectations."

Sophia Deavall Solicitor

"I did work experience at Knights whilst I was at school and college and always knew it was the firm I wanted to work for. Everyone has been so supportive and encouraged me as I have progressed from a paralegal to a qualified solicitor. We are a great team, very open, friendly and inclusive, I feel very lucky.”

Asim Din Senior Associate

“At Knights, I am given the room to flourish. I deal with high-quality work and clients, there is a real opportunity for progression. I joined as a Solicitor and have been promoted twice in three years. The environment has a real sense of teamwork and openness, not like the stuffy, restrictive ‘old school’ traditional law firm”.

Nigel Johnson IT Director

"I still can't believe I've been at Knights for 19 years, but when every day is different and you are challenged to do something you love, they just fly by. Knights expectation is you will work hard, but understand the importance of life outside of work. If I want to go on a Friday afternoon to pick up the kids, I can."

Rachel Yorke Senior Associate

"I love the atmosphere at Knights, people get on well here. Senior management are really approachable too - there are no egos, teamwork is very important to Knights. I like the fact we are encouraged to go to other offices - interact and work with each other."

Richard Pinney Partner

"I was Partner at a provincial firm that had been taken over and not being run well. I wanted out - Knights was attractive; different business structure and no need to buy in. The core difference is that we help each other – not about targets and promotion at someone’s expense."

Our culture in our colleagues' words

Our business thrives on an inclusive culture, where everyone is valued, colleagues are inspired and encouraged to ‘do the right thing’ rather than being driven by financial reward.

The result is that our teams are incredibly successful at attracting the right clients and building long term relationships, to create the opportunity to get involved in high-quality work.

We are exceptional at supporting each other. Every one of us has a role to play within a business that genuinely holds clients at its heart.

We are clear on the traits we look for and nurture in colleagues, and are highly selective on cultural fit, taking inspiration from the All-Blacks ethos.
