Our client base reflects our nationwide strength and our nationwide service delivery. We are committed to continuous improvement and our increasing success as a business is built on achieving success for our clients. We work in close partnership with clients, providing positive, practical solutions and clear, comprehensive advice.
Our aim is to attract and retain the most talented people, and part of this is providing a great place to work. So, to support fairness and equality and to encourage a healthy work-life balance, we continually monitor and improve our benefits.
We are proud that what we have achieved has been recognised over the past few years, being awarded Best Companies star status on a number of occasions and have featured in the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For.

An excellent opportunity has arisen for a lawyer to join our highly regarded and expanding Restructuring and Insolvency team in Leeds. Ideally with 2-5 years PQE, the successful candidate will be an ambitious and technically excellent lawyer with good communications skills. The role will include a varied caseload of both contentious and non-contentious insolvency and restructuring work, advising insolvency practitioners, directors, lenders, creditors, individuals and other stakeholders. As well as managing their own caseload, the successful candidate will be encouraged to develop and maintain excellent client relationships and to also be actively involved in business development and CSR activities for the team and wider firm, with the opportunity to create and build upon their own personal profile.
We invest in our people and their futures, providing continuous professional development and personal support, and we believe that it is this which makes Freeths so successful and such a great place to work.
