About Wollen Michelmore Solicitors
Wollen Michelmore are one of the leading law firms in South Devon with offices in Torquay, Paignton, Dartmouth and Newton Abbot.
We recognise that the skill and expertise of our lawyers and business support staff is paramount in enabling us to provide an excellent legal service to clients. We have gained the Investor in People Award and we are justly proud of our commitment to the training and development of all our staff.
It is the firm's policy that all staff should reach their full potential, and employees are actively encouraged to undertake further training where appropriate. The firm offers a broad range of legal services to clients enabling our lawyers and paralegals to use their skills effectively. Our business support staff are assisted to further develop their skills often leading to external qualifications. The low turnover of staff is evidence of their involvement and commitment to the firm.
Equality and Diversity
The firm is committed to providing equal opportunities to its employees and clients in all the aspects of the services provided. Equality and diversity monitoring is in place for all new recruits and existing staff on a voluntary basis.
A copy of our workforce diversity data is available free of charge on request.
Corporate Social Responsibility
Recent Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development research found that 50% of people would prefer to work for a company/firm with a strong environmental policy and we can offer this to applicants.
The firm acknowledges that it has an important role within the community in which it operates, providing services to members of those communities which may not otherwise be readily available. We provide support to local charities and organisations by supporting their fund raising events.
The firm is a member of the Legal Sector Alliance (LSA) which is an inclusive movement of law firms and organisations within the sector committed to working collaboratively to take action on climate change by reducing their carbon footprint and adopting environmentally sustainable practices.
