What we look for in our lawyers

Our lawyers range from mid-level to senior lawyers including specialist lawyers who are at the top of their fields. They have a range of private practice and in-house experience across a range of practices and industries. Our lawyers are highly motivated and entrepreneurial individuals who are “self-starters” and thrive in commercial environments. They possess sound business acumen and common sense - key attributes in senior lawyers. All of our lawyers undergo a rigorous interview and selection process.

· access to the research and precedent data bases of GPS
