Why we chose Buckles
“I qualified as a solicitor with Buckles in 2019, having completed my training with the firm. The opportunity to train here was perfect as it is an ambitious and expanding firm that offers a supportive environment in which to progress professionally. There’s a lot of positivity around Buckles and the people are very welcoming which makes it easy to fit in. My training allowed me to work within close-knit teams and gain experience across a number of areas of law. I’m given responsibility in my role and there is also a good degree of trust and flexibility. Buckles has an excellent reputation for supporting charities and local initiatives and there’s plenty of opportunity to get involved and also to attend social events which help bring the whole firm together.”
James Munn, Solicitor in Commercial Property
“I always wanted to work in the legal profession, so I jumped at the chance to take up an Apprenticeship at Buckles in 2005. I have progressed through a range of roles during my time here. There’s lots of variety in the work and scope for professional development. It’s a really friendly place to be – there’s a nice rapport among colleagues and everyone is very helpful. There’s an open culture at Buckles and, although the firm continues to grow, it still retains a family feel. Staff are highly professional and help to put clients at ease. I really enjoy working here.”
Emma Towler, Court of Protection Administrator
“I initially became aware of Buckles when I met two Partners at a networking event. When the opportunity arose to join the team, I was impressed by the ambition of the firm and the plans for growth that are in place. I work within an expanding Private Client team that comprises a breadth of specialisms. We work closely with our International team which means we cover a wide variety of interesting matters. Buckles has also established a broad external network of contacts and has excellent relationships with them. The firm provides a supportive and trusting environment with clear routes for progression. Everyone here is friendly, approachable and easy to deal with.”
Marie Cooper, Associate in Private Client
“I joined Buckles at an exciting time for the firm in 2016. Our London team has played a key role in generating business development across the firm through our International service offer. The London office has developed its own identity – the whole team is very supportive of each other and there’s great camaraderie between us. It’s great to be a part of a friendly firm with a growing reputation and experience such a positive working environment.”
Elspeth Chipping, Associate in Private Client
“I really enjoy working for Buckles. I was completing my LLM qualification when the role for a French-speaking Paralegal became available in 2016. I wanted to continue working in the UK and, having researched the firm online, it sounded like an exciting opportunity. My experience has lived up to my expectations – people here are friendly and work as a team. Everyone is dedicated and really cares about doing their best for clients. The firm nurtures its staff and there is an open culture. The International team emphasises the development of best practice and my role is extremely interesting. I’m proud to be working for a firm with a good and growing reputation in the UK and beyond.”
Léa Maynard, Paralegal in French Law
“I joined Buckles in October 2012 straight from University. From day one I was given a lot of responsibility which has helped me to gain invaluable experience to hit the ground running. Each day is different and it is exciting and challenging to work for a company who are constantly striving to deliver the best.”
Lauren Godfrey, Solicitor in Dispute Resolution
“At Buckles, we are updated at regular intervals to feel part of the wider team. Buckles is a local market leader and I am proud to tell people I work here.”

“Buckles Solicitors has an excellent reputation and is one of the main reasons I chose to work for the company. Staff at all levels, take an interest in making Buckles feel like a welcoming workplace where everyone is valued. This includes participating in sporting events and team building activities. Staff are encouraged to develop and progress and are praised for their contribution to the success of the company.”
Michaela De Paola, Paralegal in Property
“My role as a legal secretary has changed significantly over the last 12 years. Originally I was employed as PA to one Partner but as the firm grew and developed, I am now Team Assistant to two departments, providing administrative support to six lawyers. My role is varied, interesting and challenging – no two days are the same. As the role has changed I have had to adapt my skills to fit the needs of a progressive office – a personal challenge but one that Buckles has always encouraged and supported.”
Ann Gale, Legal Secretary to Company Commercial and Employment
