We aim to adopt the highest professional and ethical standards and not to act in such a way as to compromise our firm’s integrity. We recognise that our reputation relies on the qualities of the people that make up the firm.

We actively promote respect between our staff members in their dealings with each other and with clients and other third parties.  We work hard to create a positive and healthy working environment which encourages our colleagues to have rewarding careers and job satisfaction.

We consider all staff members to be equal and we aim to create a workplace which is enjoyable and free of unlawful discrimination.  In this regard, we maintain a Diversity and Inclusion policy. We are proud that we provide employment opportunities for a significant number of people with a range of skills. We welcome diversity in all its forms and have a tradition of valuing the benefit of the individual.

We do not encourage conformity for its own sake but rather prize the colour and interest that a wide spectrum of characters provides. Fairness and respect are core to our values and nowhere are these more important than in the workplace.

We are fully committed to the highest possible standards of openness, honesty and accountability and actively encourage staff members who have serious concerns about any real or perceived departure from the high ethical standard that we set to voice those concerns openly.  

We seek to ensure that all staff have access to the training they need both for their own development and to enable them to deliver a high quality service.
