The Tees journey is all about going from strength to strength - and you can be a part of it. We’ve always had top quality work and top quality values to guide our ways of working.

Our technology-based business model

Law firms often say the client is at the heart of everything they do, but while that may well be their intention, in reality, a lot of them are traditional law firms, without the modern technology to make that a possibility to deliver in a reliable way. In recent years Tees has undergone a vast business process re-engineering project to put technology - and clients - genuinely at the heart of the business.

We are delighted to have been announced as a finalist in the Technology Team of the Year Category for the ‘British Legal Technology Awards 2022’

Employee benefits

Our business is built on people, and the great relationships we enjoy with our clients are a reflection of the relationship we’ve built with our employees.

We offer all the normal benefits of working at a modern law firm – a stakeholder pension scheme, non-contributory death in service benefit and permanent health insurance are standard.
