Become a Hedgeholder

Make a real difference at an employee-owned law firm.

Founded in 1789 and employee-owned since 2021, Hedges aims to make a difference by providing exceptional legal advice for life. Our team spans many legal specialities but tying us together is a shared set of values and the desire to be trusted advisors to our clients throughout their lifetimes. We know that good legal support is about far more than just law and the superb testimonials we receive bear witness to the close and sustaining relationships that we build with our clients.

We regularly survey our employees (known as HedgeHolders) to understand how they are feeling about the business, their role in it, and we review and feedback those findings. Our goal is to continually seek to improve our staff engagement and to be an employer of choice in every way. Our employee ownership or ‘HedgeHolding’ as we call it, also means that all of our employees share in the profitability of the business and as such have a real interest in supporting its success.

“To work for a firm that truly cares about the people that work for them, and now own a slice of that business is unrivalled.”

James Overton
