At Peters & Peters you can stand out. You’ll get exposure to fast-paced, high profile, heavyweight disputes, working alongside the top lawyers in their field. You’ll have influence earlier than your peers in larger, less specialist firms. You’ll get frequent quality contact with clients and partners, you’ll do varied work with lots of courtroom action, and you’ll enjoy our informal, personal and more collegiate culture.

Our employees tell us they stay with the firm for the work and the people.

The work is outstanding. We are ranked as top tier for international criminal and civil disputes for corporations, governments and prominent people you’ve heard of.

And the people? Ask around. Everyone says our people are actually nice: friendly, collegiate and don’t take ourselves too seriously.

A career with Peters & Peters is, of course, not for the faint hearted. You’ll work on demanding cases where people’s livelihoods, reputations and liberties are at risk. So expectations are high.

But you can be confident you will be part of a warm, collaborative team where your contribution will be valued and where you will be set up to learn, grow and achieve.

Peters & Peters people are as comfortable in the boardroom as they are in a police station. A diverse workforce is central to our success, so we recruit and promote on experience and skills alone.

If this sounds like an environment where you would succeed, we would really like to hear from you.

Whether you are an aspiring trainee solicitor, a qualified lawyer or a business professional, we offer exciting opportunities where you can really make a difference.

Stefan’s journey

Stefan’s journey

"I really enjoy the combination of a social working environment with high quality, interesting work. Everyone knows everyone and people get on well with each other so the atmosphere is always really friendly and pleasant. The fantastic culture of the firm is balanced with compelling cases that rival that of magic circle firms. It’s the best of both worlds."

Having been a paralegal at Peters & Peters for a year before applying for a training contract, I knew for a long time it was the firm I wanted to train with. The culture of the firm matched my own, the experience and capabilities of the fee-earners was impressive and its standing in the legal world of Business Crime, Commercial Litigation and Civil Fraud was, and still is, undeniably exceptional. I wanted to be a significant part of this; I knew I could contribute to the firm's success and be an invaluable asset first as a Trainee, and then as a qualified Associate.

Get involved

Our people put their energy into a raft of clubs, societies and committees to improve the lives of our people and communities.  They give all employees, whatever their interests, the opportunity to push forward real change, creating channels for creativity, fundraising, socialising and fun.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

Diversity and Inclusion (D&I)
Diversity & Inclusion is integral to the way we recruit and operate as a business. Our active D&I allies continuously look for ways to improve, and raise awareness of key issues and events. We are proud signatories to the Women in Law Pledge created by The Law Society, the Bar Council of England and Wales and the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx). Our organisation is committed to the progress of gender equality, elimination of gender discrimination and pledge to make positive change for the legal profession.

Events
We are a friendly and sociable firm with social activities happening all the time. These include parties, drinks and lunches as well as sporting and creative activities. Our events committee drives an active calendar of events and welcomes suggestions from all employees.

Creative Club
This society was formed by a group of like-minded employees who wanted an outlet to share ideas, experiences and talents with other creative minds. It is an inclusive group, open to anyone who has an interest in creativity, whether that be artistic, craft-related, dance, gardening or cooking. They arrange various competitions and activities available to all employees.

Green Team
We are actively committed to minimising our environmental impact. Our dedicated Green Team meets monthly to reduce our carbon footprint and plan initiatives.

Wellbeing

Our wellbeing initiatives include weekly lunchtime yoga classes, quarterly wellbeing seminars, subsidised health club memberships and an Employee Assistance Programme.

We also have a dedicated team of certified Mental Health First Aiders, who together with our partner-level Mental Health Champion, raise awareness of issues surrounding mental health and promote wellbeing activities.

Where we stand out from other City firms is our commitment to fostering a positive work life balance. We reward quality and engagement, and our employees have the flexibility to work from home when needed.

We have taken care to ensure our hybrid working guidelines strike the right balance: offering choice whilst ensuring individuals are accountable to their clients and those they supervise. Our aim is to guarantee everyone can contribute to our culture and gets the opportunity to develop and progress.

We know feeling valued in the workplace creates dedicated, motivated and happy teams. We give new starters a comprehensive support system to make sure they feel well equipped to hit the ground running.

This support continues throughout your career. Regular training curated by our dedicated Learning & Development specialist aids continuous improvement and lasting job satisfaction.
