Bristol’s Legal Scene and the rise of Agile Working

Lawyers are mobile and can take their work ‘to go’. “Geography matters much less than it ever used to.”

For James Sutherland, a real estate litigation partner at Burges Salmon, “I probably get more work done on the train between Bristol and London than I do when I’m in the office for a comparable period of time.”

By offering lawyers greater flexibility in how they work, legal practice becomes more accessible to those facing barriers to entry.

Bristol is a “great legal hub” that is seeing ever-higher quality work on a par with that found in the Capital, Revell observed.

Bristol is a really good example of the modern legal practice in action: flexible working spaces and a healthier attitude towards work/life balancecompared to London offices.
