Yvonne Tivey, Head of Business Strategy and Development

“I thoroughly enjoy working for SME. It is a forward thinking law firm offering great opportunities. There is a strong mentality of team work so you never feel alone or unsupported. The quality of work is excellent and provides fee earners with challenges, keeping the area of discipline interesting. Since joining the firm I have always felt like I am working with an extended family. Outside the usual day to day business, the firm recognises the importance of work/life balance and social events for all. I would highly recommend joining this firm.”

Claire Bentick, Solicitor

“There is great atmosphere in the office, every member of staff is approachable and were very welcoming when I first started. All the departments work well together and there is really good communication between departments. The partners keep everyone updated on what is happening within the firm and you feel like you have a real stake in the success of the firm. There is also a great social side to the firm ranging from the firm’s networking events and charity bake-offs to work arranged outings. Overall I think that SME is a really rewarding place to work and as a trainee solicitor I have been given great opportunities to learn and develop through genuine hands-on experience.”

William Cadbury, Solicitor

“Having spoken to friends at other laws firms I think one of the things that stands out here is that everyone is really approachable whatever their “rank”. If you have a query that you really can’t answer you know someone will be willing to help. Also, the opportunity for career progression – I know that’s probably a cliché and everyone says it but it’s clear that it’s true here."

Ellen Conry, Solicitor

“I feel appreciated and supported. There is a really good team feel. I don’t feel that I am competing with my colleagues but working together with them.”

Joanna Gardner, Solicitor
