About Us

Our story

Believe it or not, there was once a time when you couldn’t talk to your solicitor at lunchtimes or on a Saturday morning. We thought it was time to shake things up a bit…

Back in the 1960s solicitors pretty much did things on their terms. BPE was established by innovators and mould breakers to change all that and hand the power over to you, our clients. Although our leadership and people have changed over the years, our passion for innovation and our refreshing, imaginative approach remain at the core of our culture. So that today we provide wide-ranging legal expertise and flexibility, all backed by technology and smarter ways of working to meet your exact needs.

Power to our people

We really understand the wider commercial challenges you face and offer you expert, practical advice that can be applied directly to your business or personal challenges. We’ve built our team on the sharpest legal minds from other law firms (including the city of London), from business and straight out of law college. It’s the perfect blend of experience and energy and we give all our people the autonomy and freedom to find ways to work better with you.


We’ll never be typical lawyers

We’re approachable, easy to talk to and always have your best interests at heart. We’ll always look for what’s best for you, not for us. We find our empathetic and pragmatic approach makes it quicker and easier to resolve challenging and confusing issues. We never sit on the fence: we always give you firm advice and direction so you have the confidence to act.


Our values are at the heart of all that we do

We searched long and hard for a set of values that truly summed up the good bits of our culture and we constantly revisit them to make sure they are still real and true.

We celebrate and support individuality and diversity in our clients and our people,

We work together to achieve more

We are committed to continuous improvement

We think and work creatively and innovatively

We care about our people, our clients, our work and our communities
