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, Samantha Singh, our Accounts Manager, has been with our firm two years today (18th of January 2018)! 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?
For me, it’s the people that I work with and the diverse (and sometimes challenging) projects I get to work on. I really value working with a vibrant, caring team who love coming to work every day. The work itself is also something I find really enjoyable – there’s never a dull moment!
What was the firm like when you started?
I guess this is pretty similar for most of us who have been here a little while – the firm was smaller when I started, less staff and probably a little less busy. Over my time here we have grown so much, our numbers are continuing to grow and we’re the busiest I have ever seen us – which is really exciting to be a part of!
How has the firm changed in your time here?
The firm has grown so much in my time here – in our numbers, our work, our approaches, everything! It’s been a bit of a whirlwind, which isn’t a bad thing. Being on the inside and seeing this growth, knowing where it has come from and seeing first-hand how hard everyone works has been a pretty great experience so far.
What are you looking forward to in your coming year with Gouldson Legal?
I’m really looking forward to moving into our new office and potentially expanding the Accounts team! We have selected new premises and even just seeing the initial concepts and designs has me very excited for the change – especially the outdoor area to relax and maybe enjoy a Friday drink!
How do you spend your time away from the office?
My weekends are spent with my family. My husband and I have three energetic and wonderful children, so we fill our weekends with rides, walks, visits to all different places, sport – and everything in between!
We’re also currently working on our dream house, so I spend time on my weekends working towards that, which is something I’m really excited to see come to fruition and hopefully be able to move into in the next few years!
