The AllAboutLaw perspective on Foot Anstey
Foot Anstey is the firm for lawyers who aren’t too interested in sticking to the conventional way of life. It’s a firm that aims to value collaboration over convention, and they describe themselves as “refreshingly human.” Past trainees have praised the supportive atmosphere at the firm, commenting that it “really does deliver on its friendly, approachable and supportive ethos.”
While the firm now has 550 people across seven locations and a portfolio of international clients, it wasn’t always this way. Foot Anstey comes from humble beginnings, initially starting out as a high street firm, and growing to one of the fastest growing law firms in the UK. This rapid growth came from hard work and dedication to their clients as opposed to mergers.
Foot Anstey works in a variety of different sectors, ranging from space to islamic finance, and many of the firm's lawyers are leaders in their field. Don’t just take our word for it: the firm recently won a highly prestigious Law Firm of the Year at the British Legal Awards and was recognised on the Financial Times’ list of Innovative Lawyers.
Aside from legal work, trainees get involved in volunteering, with two days of paid volunteering leave every year. The firm even has its own foundation, the Foot Anstey Foundation, which provides yearly grants for local charities. Events like food drives and sponsored walks are held regularly to raise money.
