Our Culture

BPE's not like other law firms; scroll here to discover what makes us different.

For some time BPE has thought of itself, and been thought of by others, as being “different” to most law firms.  We put this difference down to our DNA - as a people business our Culture and DNA is therefore defined by our people – and what our people do inside and outside the business is remarkable.

We cultivate an environment that allows our individuals to be just that, and we are driven by continuous improvement to enhance the experience of our clients and staff.

One of the ways we do this is by our Works Council and our Social Committee whose role it is to provide two way feedback and improvements across the business and to help us support the community and environment we exist within.


Works Council

We believe that everyone deserves to be heard. Collaboration is something that runs through BPE, and we appreciate that good ideas can come from every part of our organisation. That’s why we have our Works Council. It’s a cross-department, cross-level group that works with the senior management team to find solutions to problems, suggest ideas and identify ways that BPE can continuously improve. From new staff benefits to feedback on events and activities, the Council collates suggestions from anyone and discusses them in council meetings. The Works Council performs a vital role in helping everyone feel valued for their contributions and we don’t just mean for their daily tasks.

Works Council

BPE's culture allows for a good work/life balance and the firm hosts regular socials for teams and on a firm-wide level, integrating people into the firm.

Social Committee

For many years, we have maintained a social committee, tasked with bringing people together from across the firm. It’s part of our dedication to a healthy balance of work, rest and play. The committee plans events to raise funds for charity, and also facilitates opportunities to mingle with people from other teams that might not otherwise come into regular contact. This is really important in fostering a community spirit throughout the company and we regularly hold social events where it’s all about fun.
