Why work for B P Collins?

Reputation and Quality

B P Collins is a large, regional law firm providing a range of legal services for businesses and private individuals. Our commercial and private client teams are cohesive, collegiate, continually evolving and regarded as some of the best in their fields.

Clients and Teams

Each year we recruit solicitors at all levels and across all teams to ensure we are continually best placed to meet the legal needs of our clients. Of equal importance are our support teams of trainees, legal assistants, paralegals and business support professionals who all work together to deliver the highest standards of client service.

People and Environment

We are proud of our progressive and supportive culture that welcomes diversity, encourages personal development and rewards performance. 

We appreciate that our people value flexibility in their busy lives which is why we are embracing an agile workplace with great technology.  In particular we have an excellent, proven track record of attracting City trained/experienced lawyers who live more locally and opt for a more balanced life with flexible working and a lesser commute whilst retaining high quality work and clients.  For a confidential chat please get in touch with – Jacqui Symons, H R Manager

We also recognise the important role our business plays in climate change and are committed to taking the right decisions on environmental issues in the workplace.   

And most importantly we aim to have fun!  See below one of our more daring team adventures in Norway on the edge of Trolltunga (Troll's Tongue).
