When I joined the firm at the end of 2003, Tim Bishop, the Senior Partner, said to me, “Tell me what you want and discuss it with me. I'll listen and nine times out of ten I'll say ‘Yes!’.” I believe that the ethos of the firm comes from the top. Since I came I have seen great improvements in our working methods and the quality of our fee earners and support staff. The firm has expanded progressively and is quick to adapt to change, both in relation to legal matters and methods, and also in relation to outside pressures and influences such as the financial crisis we are all experiencing today. In short, it is an exciting place to work, and the enthusiasm and friendliness of everyone bears this out.
We all work jolly hard, but without the vision and direction from the top, the effort would be lost. I'm glad to say that it isn't!

Sue Modi, Financial Controller
I joined Bonallack in February 2008 and from the start felt that it is a firm that intends to go places but wants its people to enjoy the journey along the way. My working life is challenging but also great fun especially because of the people I work with. I feel that in years to come I will look back at these times with great satisfaction.
Alan Jenner, Associate Solicitor, Commercial Team
Since joining Bonallack & Bishop in 2006 I have been given both financial and moral support as well as the encouragement I have needed to help me complete my Legal Practice Course whilst also working full time. I have gained valuable experience in Conveyancing and continue to benefit from, more recently, working in Employment, Litigation and Commercial law. The firm’s assistance is immeasurable in helping me to achieve my goal and progress my training and I very much look forward to taking the next steps of my career with Bonallack & Bishop.
