About Us

Culture and Values

Our culture of teamwork and respect is key to the relationship that we forge with our clients.

Working with us

Our mission is to always be the client’s first choice.

We work to ensure that the relationship we have with our clients is:

  • Quality driven
  • Pragmatic
  • Supportive
  • Responsive
  • Professional

Working for us

Spearing Waite has a “down to earth” culture where everybody contributes. We strive to ensure that everyone who works for us feels that:

  • They are part of a team
  • They are valued – they are a person not a number
  • They are fully supported
  • Their career path is in their own hands
  • They have a voice

Here are just a few of the quotes provided by our staff in an anonymous questionnaire in February 2015:

“One location means great joined-up service and a real focus on client needs”

“The firm individualises the service provided to each client in a professional yet affable manner”

“The team is genuinely approachable, likeable and commercial. Other firms espouse such values but fail to live up to them.”

“All pulling in the same direction”

“Friendly, open and non-hierarchical”

“It is a firm that gives its staff the freedom to participate and flourish”

“It is a large firm with family values; personable and amenable to staff and clients alike. The firm is loyal to its staff and vice versa”

…and here are some quotes from our clients:

“Ever since we started working with Spearing Waite, way back in 2002, it was clear that this was no ordinary law firm. The culture was strong and we immediately felt an affinity. It quickly became apparent that it not only attracts the best academic candidates but that it also only selects those with personality. In a very dry corporate world it is refreshing that, like our company, Spearing Waite encourages its employees to bring their personalities to work and not box them away at the front door. The firm’s people and their personalities differentiate it from the crowd.”

Robert Poutch, Director, Imperial Corporate Events Ltd

"We at Quora have used many of the top law firms including Spearing Waite.  Many of our schemes are very complex in nature and we trust Spearing Waite to deliver as they always have. We would highly recommend this firm to others"

Jason L Davis, Director, Quora Ltd

“Throughout my five years as Head of Group Risk for FCT Enterprises I have had tremendous affection for the solicitors I have worked with at Spearing Waite. They have given immense amounts of time and patience to ensure that the “preferred” route was perhaps not such the “wisest” route in order to win cases, and their wisdom has encouraged me to advise my groups about picking the right legal battles. Many a time they have simply provided a listening ear, hypothetical options, shared experiences, and of course, many a jovial moment. I continue to consider everyone as simply an inherent part of the team, something that I cannot praise enough.”

Ian Francis LLB, Director, Virtual Barn Limited

“I have dealt with Tom Bower and his team for the past four years and I can honestly say they are the best legal firm I have ever used.  They are professional, resourceful, speedy, efficient and great value to boot!

Always quick to respond to any query or problem the my commercial property company may have, I would have no hesitation in recommending  Spearing Waite.”

Tamsin May, Company Secretary, FXL
