What are you looking for?

We never shy away from a challenge

We are a leading, full-service UK law firm. Since our beginning, we have been led by the things that matter. We care about fighting for the right outcomes. Solving the seemingly unsolvable. Protecting businesses, individuals and livelihoods. Supporting our people, our communities. Safeguarding our planet. Looking for a way forward? At Hugh James, challenges – of all sizes – are readily accepted.

The Hugh James difference

Our law firm has always been guided by the idea that self-belief is just as important as skillset. Our pursuit of righting wrongs and protecting what’s important keeps us driving forwards. It’s in our roots! We won’t stop until we find the answers; the outcomes that are needed.

We are focused on the work we do, the business we run, and our culture. Our entrepreneurial spirit has taken us from humble beginnings to a strong presence across the UK with offices in Cardiff, London, Manchester, Southampton and Plymouth – servicing clients from businesses, individuals and banks to public sector organisations, property companies, education establishments and utilities providers. Our collegiate culture, our forward-looking ethos, our values (which you can see below) serve to make us bigger, better, bolder than ever before.

Ready for your next challenge?

We’re looking for like-minded people to join our expanding team. We offer a full career path for sharp minds and we want friendly and ambitious individuals to join us on our journey.

Charity partnerships

A positive force in the community

Our work with charities on a local and national level plays a huge part in our day-to-day lives. We work with a large range of charities, some of which we support through fundraising, donations, volunteering and others we partner with where our areas of work cross paths. Staff, clients everyone comes together through a shared passion to do good in the community and support those in need.

How we make a difference

Our values

What makes us unique

Our values are embedded in our culture and guide us in everything we do. Staying true to them strengthens how we work.

01. Have courage

We never shy away from a challenge – our firm is built on this mentality.

Our self-belief along with our skillset gives us the confidence to step forwards and get the result needed.

We are led by the things that matter, and we always will be – after all it’s in our roots.

02. Be committed

We will always endeavour to get the best outcome for those we serve.

In order to do this, we have to commit to giving our all to anything we apply ourselves to.

As a team we bring energy, effort and open mindedness to solve the challenges for our clients. We are at our best when we show up for each other to get the job done.

03. Always contribute

We don’t just pay attention to our own priorities, but also the impact we have on our team and beyond.

That’s why we ensure our actions always meet the standards of what is required for the business to progress.

Our satisfaction comes from knowing we’ve played our part for our colleagues, clients, communities and the wider world.
