We pride ourselves on providing high quality advice to clients who are at the top of their field. However, perhaps more importantly, we are all committed to treating clients fairly, acting with integrity and adding real value.  To achieve this, we need lawyers and other colleagues who are not only technically excellent but also personable and emotionally intelligent.

BDBF is a dynamic business, with a collegiate atmosphere. We all stem from different backgrounds, but share the same goals: to make BDBF a great place to work and to make a real difference for our clients.

Employees at all levels are encouraged to share knowledge and ideas. We believe that every person who works at BDBF should feel as committed to the success of the firm and our values as the founders. To ensure that we are all aligned, everyone who works in the firm is entitled to their own allocation of the firm’s profits and participates in the firm’s decision making.

You can read more about our employee ownership model here, in an article by Gareth Brahams originally published in Managing Partner Magazine.
