We’ve ripped up our entire way of presenting ourselves so it actually reflects how our clients describe us.
Connecting with people is critical to everything we do. Our brand highlights our ability, willingness and desire to combine a feeling of professional integrity with a genuine affinity for (and curiosity about) people.
Personal relationships are crucial to every aspect of our business, externally with clients, contacts and winning work and, internally too, within and across teams and offices.
Our clients come from a wide range of business sectors and comprise a diverse range of organisations – from major corporations and companies to SMEs, financial institutions, investment funds and professional services firms, as well as high net worth individuals.
With us, you will work on complex, high quality & varied matters, every day.
We are committed to ambitious growth and actively encourage individual commercial innovation.
In joining us, you will be given the freedom to make things happen in your practice and your own career progression.
“I really enjoy being part of a bigger team at Greenwoods, with technical experts I can learn from.”
“I quickly came to know that Greenwoods has a clear and well-defined brand, which underpins not only the firm’s strategy but also employees’ day-to-day interactions with clients. This is crucial to the firm’s growth and provides a stable environment in which its employees can flourish.”
“I have been trusted to grow our Cambridge client-base and have been given complete autonomy and freedom to achieve this. We are a friendly and inclusive firm who put our people and our clients at the forefront of everything we do.”
Everyone’s contribution is valued, everyone’s opinion counts, our people are rewarded for making a strong contribution. Success is celebrated.
The legal services market is competitive. We welcome this; it drives us to be innovative, creative and entrepreneurial; qualities we value, encourage and support.
We use technology to help us do our job better, not as a replacement for human contact.
Excellent client service is a must for us. We work to develop our people and management skills, as well as technical legal skills. We benefit from a strong knowledge sharing culture across the firm, led by our team of specialist PSLs.
Our approach is to be proactive and look for solutions, rather than focus on problems.
“Knowledge is key to our excellent client service and we foster a strong knowledge sharing culture across the firm.
Our team of experienced PSLs is vital to this role. They equip their teams with the latest know how, specialist training, business development expertise and technical legal support in order to give our lawyers and our clients a competitive edge.
Our suite of expanding commercial know how allows our lawyers to work more efficiently and to further develop their specialist skills and experience.
Clients love our training events, expert insights and opinion articles – all bringing them the latest legal developments and commentary – and often having a direct impact on the way their business is run.”
Charlotte Davies, Head of Knowledge Management

We invest appropriately in strong central support systems to ensure our processes are efficient and facilitate the delivery of excellent legal services.
Culturally, we are non-hierarchical, consultative and team-based – committed to serving our clients in a dedicated and responsive manner. Our corporate values are respect, excellence, freedom and fun.
Our hybrid working policy means that we offer a flexible working environment including flexible working patterns and working from home, which means you can achieve a great work-life balance.”
