Bristows

We are a European headquartered hub for litigation, transactions and advice throughout the world and have remained fiercely independent since we first began in 1837. This means we are free to partner with the best people in any jurisdiction for each client need, or work with your existing relationships. We don’t work to billing targets. This ensures you get the right combination of experts working as one, who take the time to share their different perspectives and find the right answer, no matter how difficult or novel the question is. It’s a rare approach that defines the quality of our advice. And because we like to recruit inquisitive minds, many with science and technology backgrounds, we live and breathe your business, can talk the same language and have a keen eye on the future. We enjoy getting to the heart of the matter with advice that is simple to understand and easy to use. 

Like any business we have evolved with time, but our focus and spirit have remained as resolute as the quality of our advice and as inimitable as the experience we deliver.

We are Bristows, seeing things differently for those shaping tomorrow.

Flexible Working Approach

A bit of flexibility makes all the difference, and with us you’re pretty much free to choose where you work each day...

We’ve all seen the benefits of remote working. It’s convenient and efficient. It can also help productivity, encourage diversity and inclusion, and do wonders for family and work-life balance.

But we need to come together in the office too: it’s where we take care of each other, build relationships and collaborate in a way that’s more powerful and rewarding. 100 Victoria Embankment is still the mainstay of our culture and success.

Our Flexible Working policy is designed to give the best of both worlds, enabling you to choose how and where to work based on the tasks and activities you have coming up. For example, most interpersonal activities are best done in person, especially if you’re meeting someone new. In general, you can expect to spend at least half your time in the office, although this will vary week to week. Your manager can help you decide the balance that’s best.
