Bramhalls Solicitors – Job Vacancies
We are looking to add to our team of experts
JOIN OUR TEAM
At Bramhalls, a solicitor’s performance is not measured by the number of hours they bill, but on the speed and quality of the advice that they give to their clients. This thinking and approach is fundamental to Bramhalls. Hard work is still required, but it is to achieve the clients’ objectives, rather than generate fees.
WE FOCUS ON OUR CLIENTS
Working with a range of industries means we tailor our services accordingly to support our clients and their business needs.
WE HONOUR OUR HISTORY
Established in 2005, we have over the years refined our processes to be as efficient as possible and to always act always in our clients’ best interests.

A great opportunity for a specialist employment solicitor to join an established and growing team of experts, acting for employers.

Our close-knit team provides expert high-quality advice to our national client base, which includes a number of household names. We pride ourselves on our close partnerships with HR teams to provide pragmatic, cost effective and commercially sensible advice across all employment law topics.
As our client base grows so too must our team and we are looking for an experienced employment law solicitor to join us.

We are passionate about our business and proud of the clients we work with. We are looking for someone equally enthusiastic who is keen to grow and develop with the firm.

An opportunity to do quality work with quality clients, but without a city centre commute. Our office provides great routes to picturesque lunchtime walks, local delis, and easy access to the M53 and key public transport routes. We actively promote a healthy work-life balance and provide flexibility to meet both our employee and client needs.

Our charity’s main contact is Rehan Pasha. We believe he genuinely cares about our organisation’s success. He goes the extra mile, always speedy with responses, always thinking tactically. What I really like is his nuanced understanding of the charity, the relationships/tensions, the wider political and economic considerations on all our decisions.!
It is an absolute pleasure working with the team at Bramhalls. They don't overcomplicate matters or try to tie you up in lots of legal jargon. We have worked with the team for over 10 years now and they know our business and culture really well, which helps them to advise based on the realities of the operating environment. Whenever we need some advice or a second opinion, they are always on hand to guide us and their calm and consistent approach helps us to deal with matters quickly and efficiently.

Phil and the team at Bramhalls have provided employment law advice to me and the HR team at the college for over 12 years. They are great and fun to work with. They understand our organisation, are knowledgeable about the Education Sector and they're always quick to grasp the matter at hand. They provide pragmatic advice to enable us to move forward in a sensible way and are always quick to respond.

Rehan is a lovely guy who is very knowledgeable and considerate. My experience on every occasion over the past 6 years has been excellent. If I experience a problem where I need advice for a situation, it doesn't matter who answers the phone, I know I will get the best advice in a way that I understand the thought process of how the recommendations have been considered. They are a lovely friendly team, who I will continue to recommend on a daily basis to fellow HR professionals who need employment law advice.
