HM Legal
In a nutshell.

We heard people’s frustrations about legal services loud and clear. Ironically, one of the problems was the industry wasn’t very clear at all. So we decided to do something about it.

At HM Legal we’re on a journey to do law differently, so our clients and colleagues can count on us to say what we mean and do what we say. Always. Here’s how …

The HM Legal team is expanding. Check out our latest roles below – we’re looking for people to join us at all levels, and in various teams.

Our Vision

#1

Service first, second and last

What do we mean by putting the service into legal services? Our lawyers will not go AWOL. It’s our commitment to working at pace and providing regular updates; something we call our ‘No chase’ pledge.

Feel the difference

Doing law differently means treating every client differently, taking time to clearly explain options and steps, and paying attention to individual needs. And above all else, being human and picking up the phone, not hiding behind email.

We think you’ll notice the difference.
