The Team

Service Excellence is an area where we aspire to deliver and maintain high quality services and standards to our clients to help us remain a global trusted adviser. This is about the manner in which we provide legal advice to our clients – legal technology helps us augment the provision of legal services to our clients. We have over 70 service excellence colleagues across the firm to help our legal teams achieve this, led and sponsored by senior members across the firm who are committed to the team’s strategy and development. It is an area that has and continues to grow and develop and therefore a great opportunity to bring in fresh new talent to help us not only maintain the high standards but also enable the continual development and growth. It is an incredibly exciting time to kick start your career in the legal technology industry.
