Learn about our Hopkins values

Hopkins is growing, and with growth, comes new career opportunities!

We care about culture:

  • Hopkins’ culture is one that combines hard work and professionalism with a friendly and supportive working environment.
  • We recruit people with strong interpersonal skills, who can communicate effectively with colleagues and most importantly with the firm’s clients at their level in a non-judgemental and non-patronising way.
  • The personal approach we take is one of the reasons our clients continue coming back to us, time and time again, and why they are happy to recommend Hopkins to others.
  • Our specialist teams focus on making our services as flexible, straightforward and cost-effective as possible.
  • The work we do is carried out by Solicitors and Legal Executives; we don’t employ administrative staff to do the work of legal professionals.
  • We are a local firm of Solicitors – we are not another faceless organisation. We pride ourselves on providing a personal, face-to-face service. We know that building strong relationships with our clients leads to repeat business, so we strive to provide the best client experience.

We provide a high-quality service:

  • We hold the Law Society’s prestigious LEXCEL standard. This is only given to solicitors’ firms that meet the highest standards of management and customer care.
  • This is shown by where our new Commercial Property work comes from:
    • 50% repeat client work
    • 21% referrals from professionals or existing clients
    • 25% from advertising
  • We have a Google reviews ranking of 6 out of 5.0
  • Our Net Promoter Score for the firm is +77 (scores range from -100 to +100; the average for the UK legal service sector is +25 and all professional services is +52).

We invest in our people:

  • Each year we take on multiple Apprentices and Trainee Solicitors, many of which have grown their careers with us over their lifetime. In fact, many of our firm’s most successful Partners started with us as Trainee Solicitors.
  • The above is one of the many reasons we have such high levels of staff retention.
  • We are committed to equality and diversity and welcome applications from all areas of the community. A copy of the Equality and Diversity Policy is available upon request.
  • Training and progression programs are built on a criteria matrix.

We are proud of our staff’s diversity:
