What Our Employees Say

"Anyone who joins Barton Legal will gain exposure to various areas, good experience and supervision. I feel really involved in the firm processes and generating ideas to develop the business. We have the ability to work on challenging projects within a friendly team – diverse, good sense of humour and feel like a small family. Bill and Trish are approachable and always willing to help. They provide a great level of supervision and are dedicated to training us and explaining things we are unsure of. Alongside the daily tasks, there are great opportunities to take part in other activities, in a friendly environment, where our opinion is valued."

Haiqa Baig - Construction Solicitor  

"Joining Barton Legal gives you greater exposure to clients. In the office, you are trusted to do well and if you struggle, you simply don’t get told off, instead you receive supervision. People should consider joining us if they wish to progress their career, learn more, take responsibility, and get involved in developing the business further. Who knows, if they are good enough, they may end up running the business in the future. I love working at Barton Legal. There is so much respect for each other. It’s a small team, everyone is from different cultures and we get along so well. Bill and Trish really care for everyone’s mental health and they are always there to support us. We can talk to them about anything."

Sanjida Begum - Construction Solicitor 

"Barton Legal is a great business and Trish and Bill are very supportive and encouraging to all their staff.  In my opinion, the ideal candidate should be able to work as part of a team and get stuck in with anything from paginating documents, scanning documents and helping others.  We have a very good team spirit here at Barton Legal. It's a very relaxed atmosphere where you can really be yourself and if you are upset, struggling or having a bad day, you can just shout and share your frustrations without fear or judgment."
