Life at Hugh James 

Life at Hugh James is vibrant and full of opportunities. Our culture is friendly and collegiate but we maintain the professional atmosphere you would expect from a modern, leading law firm.

With social, charity and professional events throughout the year, there is more to working at Hugh James than just the day job.

Our core values of passion, leadership, integrity, empathy and results shape our culture and underpin all we do.

We're committed to working with charities to support vulnerable people in communities in which we live and work. This presents opportunities for staff to engage in fundraising activities, charitable challenges and awareness campaigns throughout the year. All of our staff are given a day out of the office each year to support a charitable initiative of their choice.
