Practice Support Executives (PSEs)

Our PSEs support an allocation of fee earners. They actively contribute and take responsibility for the support they provide; recognising their teams particular needs. And, because there is no hierarchy here, our PSEs support fee earners at a range of levels, ensuring more variety in their everyday work.

The role of our PSEs is continually developing to meet client demands, being adaptable to work in virtual teams and being key users of new technologies. Today there is a strong emphasis on client focused work and we ensure our PSEs have the opportunity to develop their skills and progress, as well as building close relationships within their team and the wider practice.
