Weightmans awarded UK Top 10 employer status

National law firm Weightmans has been recognised as a Top Employer in the UK for the 17th year in a row – and has ranked in the top ten again.

The Top Employers Certification programme – run annually by the Top Employers Institute, a global body – recognises and celebrates outstanding people-centric policies and practices that have created positive workplace environments around the world.  

Organisations are assessed on the results of a HR Best Practices Survey, which covers six HR domains and 20 individual topics, including people strategy, work environment, talent acquisition, learning, diversity, equity & inclusion and wellbeing.

Weightmans’ success in the rankings follows a year of continued growth, which saw the law firm increase total revenues by 22%. This has been supported by the firm’s merger with RadcliffesLeBrasseur in 2022, which has seen it successfully integrate teams and embed new technologies. The firm also continued to champion colleagues’ professional development – with 22 people promoted to partner or legal director.

In September 2023, Weightmans also hired the Pierre Thomas Law team – specialists in international personal injury claims and the defence of accident claims across Europe. This saw the arrival of eight new colleagues to the firm’s London office and expanded its cross-border offering and international reach.

Weightmans HR Director, Helen Taylor said: “We are immensely proud to be certified as a top employer for the 17th year in a row, and to once again be in the top ten in the UK.  

“It’s a direct reflection of the investment we continue to make in our people and processes. But ultimately, it’s down to the support, engagement, hard work and dedication of every one of our colleagues across the business – those who make Weightmans a fantastic place to work and allow us to continue to see the possibility in all we do and inspire our clients and our people.”
