The firm is unique, and they need to set up a costs function. Established by international lawyers with particular expertise in group litigation, they have managed some of the most significant claims in UK legal history. The firm is also at the cutting-edge of group consumer claims. They have now grown globally, expanding their London offices and going into Europe and the United States.

The Firm:

The firm puts people at the forefront of everything - they commit to their employees:

* to be fair and transparent with pay review processes;
