How we work

Our values are what drive us forward. They provide the framework for making decisions like who we hire, who we promote, and how we get things done. We’ve spent a lot of time, effort and energy ensuring that these values are the right ones for us as a business.

Our Code

Do The Right Thing

Integrity and honesty are non-negotiable for us, as it’s the foundation for trust with our clients and colleagues. Even when we’ve made a mistake or have to deliver bad news to people, we tell the truth.

We take responsibility for our actions; we deal with what is in front of us and ask for help if necessary.

Exceed Expectations

We care about and do the best for our clients. We are always compassionate and understanding. We stand up for the rights of our clients to get them the best possible outcomes.

We deal with problems as they arise, and we never give up.

Be Humble

We treat others as we wish to be treated, with respect and dignity. We listen to each other and choose to be compassionate, empathetic, and kind.

We muck in to help our colleagues and customers, even if it is outside of our ‘job description’. We’re not too important for any task.

Embrace and Drive Change

We’re always searching for ways to improve our processes and systems to make TLW better for our customers and colleagues. We know we need to stay adaptable and curious to thrive as a business and we all contribute to our success.

We look for opportunities, see the bigger picture and plan for the future.

Choose Collaboration

We are all responsible for contributing to a positive working environment and we see the value in building positive and supportive working relationships with our colleagues, clients and partners. We value each other's contributions and play people to their strengths.

We believe that clear communication is crucial and strive to communicate clearly, simply and effectively; and we check that the message has been understood.

Keep Learning

To be able to exceed expectations, we need to keep developing our skills and capabilities; continuous learning and development is critical. When we make mistakes, we learn from them and share our learnings with our colleagues, so we can all get better.

We value openness and curiosity. We believe that there's no such thing as a stupid question!

Team Talk

Growing our own!

We love hiring people early in their careers and helping them develop their careers with us. We very rarely hire senior staff, we prefer to promote from within. We’ve always had and continue to maintain very low staff turnover. Nearly a quarter of the staff have been with us for over 10 years!

We have an ongoing commitment to maintaining a strong work/life balance through flexible working and a range of wellbeing initiatives. We’re also focused on creating clear career progression paths.

We support staff in various ways to achieve their own continuing professional development goals, including providing financial assistance, flexible working, time off for study and exams. This extends beyond legally based qualifications. We’ve helped staff with training contracts and LPC and also assisted with conversion courses, ACCA (accounting) and HR qualifications. At our latest successful Lexcel accreditation assessment, we were recognised for its staff development.

Our People


Do you offer Training Contracts?

We do offer them, but we don’t offer them to everyone. We want you to come in and understand our business first. It is based on a competitive (but highly transparent) internal process.

Do I have to work in an office, or can I work at home?

We work on a hybrid model whereby we offer employees the option to work from home 50% of the week, once your initial training has been completed and signed off. However, we also appreciate that it is not always an option or optimal to work from home, so staff do have the option to work full time in the office should they choose to.

What are the types of work I would be doing?

We provide individuals and businesses with a wide range of legal services in the following areas:

  • Pension, Investment and Tax Claims;
  • Claims against banks;
  • Claims against finance companies under s75 and s140 Consumer Credit Act 1974;
  • Claims in relation to undisclosed commissions, breach of fiduciary duty and bribery;
  • Personal Injury Compensation.

Do I have to wear suits to work?

No, not unless you chose to, we’re pretty informal here (unless we’re in court/meeting clients).
