Hear what our team have to say about working at Baines Wilson.

Why Baines Wilson?

A large number of our senior lawyers have worked for leading firms but they decided for one reason or another that bigger firms were not for them…

  • they didn’t want to work in a “law factory”
  • they wanted more responsibility for their own destiny
  • they wanted to play a more significant role in running their department or the wider firm
  • they didn’t want to bring up kids in London, Manchester or Liverpool etc.


Most of our other lawyers have trained with the firm under the guidance of our own people. As a result our ethos is commercial but still uniquely personal.

Living and Working Here

Cumbria and North Lancashire is a cultural hub in the UK and offers a lot more than the great outdoors – whatever your passion, you’ll find it here. Most people will know that we operate in a region which is unrivalled, in UK terms, with regards to the landscape and scenery, the quality and variety of housing and schools and the activities available on our doorstep, though not many know that it is also populated by a number of world class businesses and organisations. There is also a vibrant, and surprisingly, varied culture. Our unique location provides our lawyers with a list of fantastic clients to work with, and also gives them easy access to the UK’s most popular major cities.
