Join the team

Battens would not be able to deliver an exceptional service to clients without our talented teams of successful lawyers and support staff.  We recognise the hugely important role they play in the ongoing success and development of our business.

Battens has a 300-year history, but it is a forward- thinking firm. 

Our workplace is:

  • stimulating
  • inclusive    
  • collaborative        
  • empowering 

Staff are truly valued at Battens which means they stay with us long-term and build their futures here.

Why do they stay? 

One team

There are 150 of us working at Battens, from solicitors to paralegals, legal executives to apprentices. Some of our apprentices have gone on to take leading roles in marketing, finance and as fee earners.

Many of the directors of the Battens management board started their legal training with the company.

We love to see our colleagues thrive and excel at what they do. But above all we are one team with an ambitious mindset.

Battens is a growing business with plans for expansion. We encourage staff to develop new business ideas, to network and to cultivate their ambition. We innovate, empower and nurture talent to ensure our staff reach their full potential.
