Careers With Us

Roythornes is a progressive, market leading firm and to continue our ambitious plans for growth we need the best people.

At Roythornes we put our people first; as a result many of today’s partners trained with the firm and are now involved in managing one of the UK’s  top 200 law firms. The development of our staff into future leaders has been one of the key reasons for our impressive track record and we aim to continue to ‘grow organically from within’.

We place training and development of our people at the heart of everything we do by offering an excellent succession programme offering a range of opportunities to grow and develop. We are very proud of our investment in our staff and environment and hold awards in both areas

Additionally, we have also been featured in the top 1000 companies to inspire Britain. 

We regularly feature in the Legal 500, in particular for our skills in the agricultural sector, where we have been a consistently ‘first tier’ firm. Other teams are also mentioned for their work, including our litigation team:

‘Standout regional firm’ Roythornes Solicitors houses an ‘excellent’ team, which assists farmers, landowners and high-net-worth individuals with a range of contentious matters such as proprietary estoppel claims and Inheritance Act disputes’ (Legal 500 2017)
