Here at Gouldson Legal we are proud to employ a team of experts, who really care about the outcomes we achieve for our clients – from our dedicated administration staff all the way through to our senior legal team.We think that workplace culture plays a very important role in the overall success of our firm and the experience of our clients – team members who enjoy coming to work and like where they work are always going to go above and beyond. That is why we put such strong emphasis on who we hire and how they fit into our team – they have to care about the work they do and the experience of their clients as much as the rest of us do!
We’re proud of the team that we have built and that fact that we all actually like coming to work, we’re also proud that so many of our team stick around for the long-haul!
For example, our Lawyer, Jessica Stanley has been with our firm one year today (17th of October 2017)! So we decided to see why she has stuck around and what she is looking forward to in the future.

What is your favourite thing about working at Gouldson Legal?
My favourite thing is the people I have the opportunity to work alongside, as well as (of course) our fluffy friends Hugo and Harriet.
What was the firm like when you started?
The firm was a little smaller in size when I started a year ago, and had a different team structure in place. Since then we’ve seen a lot of growth and have implemented some changes to the way we go about things in order to best serve our clients. We have also had some fresh faces come aboard, but the team still feels quite close-knit, as it did when I started.
How has the firm changed in your time here?
The firm has definitely experienced growth since I started; we’re seeing more clients come in the door than ever before, and the number of staff we have on board has grown too. As I mentioned earlier, we’ve made some changes to cater for this growth, including making adjustments to our team structures and welcoming some new team members to the firm!
What are you looking forward to in your coming year with Gouldson Legal?
There are always new challenges and experiences arising within the firm, and I’m looking forward to seeing what’s in store in the next year. The past year has been a busy one - so if that says anything about the year ahead, my bet is on another successful and busy year for the firm!
How do you spend your time away from the office?
Outside of work, I enjoy making the most of the sunshine with a picnic in the park, a walk along the river or a trip to some local markets for a great brew of coffee.
