We’re a law firm for
the smart thinkers;
the mould breakers;
the go-getters

Here you’ll find top quality work, cutting-edge training, high profile clients and supportive colleagues.

At Shakespeare Martineau you couldn’t be in a better place to succeed. We’re light on rigid hierarchies, and strong on energy, ambition and enjoying what we do.

There are still law firms who see promotion pegged to time-served experience. We don’t. If you show the capability and zeal to do a job our business needs, you’re ready.

There are no artificial barriers. We don’t try to shrink you and your ambitions to fit. We’ll simply set you on the right track for success and give you the support to get there.

We put a high value on our people’s individuality and the interests that make them unique.

Enjoying what you do inside and outside work means having the opportunity to let your personality shine.

We don’t confuse having a career with having a life. In our experience, personal and business success, is an intoxicating blend of the two.

Our clients don’t just want the law. They want robust advice that is grounded in technical expertise and delivered with personality.

But don’t just take it from us – meet our people

We are recognised as an exciting firm that invests in our biggest asset – our people.

We won the prestigious Best Workplace Initiative award at The Lawyer Awards 2018, beating off competition from other national law firms.

Our award winning workplace initiative ‘Walk to the Gold Coast’ saw over 90% of our people joining in on monthly stepping activities, with each being given an activity tracker to get them stepping.

Our people became more active, lost weight, saw more sunlight, built positive stronger working relationships both internally and externally and had a lot of fun doing it.
