BTLawyers to me is home.  It is a place I have grown and developed personally and professionally.  Like any home, I want to protect it, help it grow and support it as it has supported me.

Investing in training and development, new technologies and continuous improvement of systems and processes is an integral part for BTL to work smarter not harder.

Among the many additional benefits that the firm offers is to encourage both mental and physical wellbeing with a desire for happiness at the forefront of the firm’s beliefs and values.  BTL encourage staff to go enjoy the things they love; whether that’s team sports, gardening, painting or spending time with friends and family.  It’s important to unwind, recharge and return refreshed and refocused.

I am in a unique position where I see the Directors “behind the scenes” and the passion and dedication they have for running a successful business.  Their genuine desire for inclusion, diversity, equality and providing a safe and rewarding work environment.

Everyone is given opportunity at BTLawyers.  It’s up to you to decide where you can take it.

Cara TuckerCara Tucker, Manager (Practice Delivery and Operations)

I chose to work at BTLawyers because of their tenacious reputation after hearing great reviews from other colleagues in the legal industry. BTLawyers is known for their fighting spirit and ability to progress matters when others cannot. I therefore, wanted to join this leading firm for the opportunity to grow my professional skills.

Working at BTLawyers has been one of the best professional experiences I have had. BTLawyers strive to take on new challenges every day and be the very best they can be. It is fantastic to be a part of a group of people ready to tackle anything they face with such expertise.

The most unique and different quality about working at BTLawyers is their innovative structure and inclusiveness. I have not previously worked in a firm where they are so inclusive of all staff including support staff with various projects and opportunities for growth.

I would recommend working at BTLawyers for many reasons, but the most important would be to have the opportunity to wake up each day and go into a job that challenges you in the best ways, but is as equally rewarding.

Emily Wall, Secretary

Working at BTLawyers is completely different from any other law firm or workplace.

It’s an innovative workplace that continually seeks to improve its performance, quality and skill, whilst maintaining a good work/life balance.  I choose to work at BTL because I have always felt a sense of dissatisfaction unless I was able to thrive in an environment of autonomy and constant growth to reach my full potential.

Striving for success is an innate feature required to be able to work at BTL and I am thankful for the measures put in place to adequately measure performance in a practical way to assist with self-improvement and career progression. Working smart instead of hard is the BTL way and it most definitely brings well-deserved rewards along the way.
