Working with US

As specialists in our area of law, and given our success in many complex cases, often against very high-profile and well-resourced opponents, we are justifiably proud of our ability to provide high quality advice to clients who are at the top of their field.

At the centre of our ethos is our committment to treat clients fairly, act with integrity and add real value.  To achieve this, we consistently seek to ensure our team is made up of people who are not just 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 are. 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.
