Our goal is quality of life

We agree and for this reason we believe the attitude “we own you 24 hours a day” or even “12 hours a day” is unethical, unnecessary and unimaginative. We only take on clients we can provide sterling service to without overstretching ourselves. We see the choice of work and choice of client as being central to our main goal which is an enjoyable work life. We invest heavily in information technology and although this benefits our clients our main goal is to make life easier for ourselves. If you are going to process a lot of work, it should be at least set up so it is easy and stress free. All data should be laid out so you know where it is and as many tasks as possible should be automated.
Our balanced working environment
Our solicitors are encouraged to enjoy their life and to that end they can work remotely. This is possible because of our paperless office and highly efficient systems and workflow database. In fact although we have seating for 12 staff in our Sydney CBD office we think of ourselves as a virtual firm.
We have embraced technology and encouraged our clients to do everything via email or the cloud rather than telephone. We believe the telephone causes stress because it requires two people to come together at the same time whereas email allows each party to work on a problem when it suits them (even if it is in a different time zone).
Work Life Quality
At Bransgroves, we encourage a highly professional, yet relaxed, working environment. Our office is an open plan in which partners, associates, junior solicitors and law clerks all rub shoulders. This egalitarian atmosphere encourages personal and career growth uninhibited by the hierarchy found in the traditional law firm.
Bransgroves places a high value on allowing staff balance their work and personal/family responsibilities. To this end solicitors set their own hours and are encouraged to work from home at least one or two days per week. Solicitors who are parents are encouraged to arrive late or leave early to drop or collect their children to and from school and to go to concerts etc. This is made possible by a remuneration system directly linked to the fees you recover.
A move to Bransgroves provides the flexibility of self employment without the concerns of lack of work and ongoing administrative support. You are your own boss and as long as your clients are happy you can set your own hours. These days commercial clients are willing to deal mostly by email. They do not care when you turn work around, whether it is late at night, early in the morning or during regular hours−so long as the work is turned around within 24 hours.
