Our Culture

Stayers. Team-players. Find-a-wayers.

We enjoy working hard together and we play together too. The firm places a high importance on a social and collaborative ethos, both in and out of the office. There are plenty of opportunities to get to know your colleagues and have fun after you switch off your computer.


You’ll be invited to a wide range of after-work events with other trainees, and colleagues. We have a social committee that organises entertainment throughout the year, from our summer BBQ to our year end party. We even have our own ‘Stars in Their Eyes’ talent show.


There are opportunities to join various sporting teams; touch rugby, football, hockey, golf, rowing and tennis.


For us, Corporate Social Responsibility is not an add on. It’s an integral part of who we are. We consider we have an obligation to put something back into our community. And that’s what we have been doing for over a decade. The firm’s charitable and fundraising initiatives are drawn together under the Burness Paull Foundation. The Foundation is funded by the partnership and supports both charitable initiatives of the firm and individual fundraising and other charitable initiatives of employees.
