Business Wales is committed to supporting the growth and resilience of the legal sector in Wales and to help small to medium sized law firms achieve their ambitions, with confidence.

To thrive, legal practices and leaders need to overcome common challenges around increased competition, succession planning, recruitment and retention, leadership, diversity and inclusion, technology, business operations and marketing.

The wellbeing of those working within the legal sector in Wales is increasingly important and the benefits of a happy, positive workplace are generally understood.

Every firm is different but there is plenty of support out there to create long-lasting wellbeing programmes that inspire and support your people. To help, Business Wales has spoken to a broad range of Welsh law firms – some over a century old – that are regarded for creating a culture of wellbeing that’s helped to attract more employees, clients and collaborators as a result.

Case studies

How law firms can maintain a culture of wellbeing, and stay in line with new regulatory guidance is exemplified by the law firms in the following video. Dr Nerys Llewellyn Jones, Managing Partner at Agri Advisor LLP, Clive Thomas, Managing Director at Watkins & Gunn, and Sophie Ensor, a Senior Paralegal at Hopleys GMA speak to Business Wales about their approach to creating a sustainable culture of wellbeing.
