Join Us

Our doors are always open to talented people with a genuine passion for delivering outstanding client service and the will to master their chosen field of expertise – property litigation. Our business is built on a diverse and amazing group of lawyers, professionals, clients, referrers, partners and referrers.  Attracting, retaining and nurturing great people and great relationships is our number one priority.

A business is only as good as its people. That is why we will consider applications from credible candidates at any time and if you make the grade we will make space for you.  Be warned though – we are very selective.

What is it like working at Hägen Wolf?

We are a genuinely nice bunch of people occupying beautiful spaces, working smart and using progressive and cutting edge systems and technology.  Our culture is informal.  You can be yourself.  If you are seeing a client or you are in court, wear business attire.  Otherwise, wear whatever you feel comfortable in.   No need to cover up any tattoos.  Wear a hat if you like!  We work hard, but we have fun as well and we believe in ‘giving back’.  People perform best when they are happy and feel part of something.

Despite not being a ‘big firm’, we deal with a fascinating and diverse range of work across a wide spectrum of sectors and for clients ranging from individuals to multi-national corporates.  No other firm offers this eclectic mix. It is also about the furthest you can get from a litigation factory or corporate law.  You need however have no concerns as to the ‘quality of work’ that we undertake.

Your long-term prospects?  If you deliver, they are excellent.  You will have a transparent career path with eligibility for partnership once you have 10 years post-qualification experience under your belt, a bespoke training plan, regular performance reviews and monthly mentoring from our managing partner.  We will map your career out with you and help you get there.  We will invest in you. You are the future after all…

But don’t take our word for it:

What we are looking for?

There is no typical Hägen Wolf person.  We are not clones.  We are a collection of individuals working together, each with their own strengths, weaknesses and qualities.   The best teams are made this way.  So, sorry we can’t answer that question.  You will either fit, or you won’t.  However, you will need to share our values, be intelligent, be able and willing to work hard and smart and be committed to both mastery of this area of legal practice and to delivering an outstanding service.
