Berwins is proud to have been listed in the Legal 500 and Chambers Directories for many years and is Lexcel accredited and is an Investor in People. It also holds the Law Society’s CQS accreditation for the quality of its conveyancing work.
Berwins is a law firm which works to deliver passion and care in all it does - to its clients, its work, its people and its community. We care deeply for the needs of our clients and the quality of the work we do for them; we work with them to achieve what they need, taking ownership of their issues and of their quest to find solutions; and we strive to be accessible on our clients' terms, not our own.

I co-ordinate our work experience and internship programmes and enquiries in these areas should be made to me.

We are looking for a part time lawyer to join our Legal 500 rated commercial property team.

The head of the team Sophie Barton works three days a week and cover for her work on her non-working days would be part of the brief – as she would cover for the applicant. The legal assistant is highly experienced and provides good secretarial and broader assistance.
