What it's like to work here


Everyone who works at Neves are handpicked for their hardworking, "can do, will do" attitude who are willing to go the 'extra mile' for our clients.

SME MK and Bucks Awards Gold Winner
We're delighted to announce that we won the Employer of the Year award at the SME Business Awards Milton Keynes and Buckinghamshire 2024. At Neves, our dedicated team members are at the heart of everything we do, so we are thrilled that this has been recognised by a panel of independent business leaders.

Charlotte Clements - Chartered Legal Executive

I have been with Neves since January 2015. Neves have always supported my professional development.  I studied for my LPC on a part-time basis, alongside working full-time at Neves. When I decided to start the LPC my main concern was that I would really struggle to manage my time, but Neves has allowed me the flexibility to be able to focus both on my studies and my work responsibilities.

I have recently qualified as a Chartered Legal Executive through CILEx. 

I feel as though my points of view are considered and taken on board by solicitors and partners alike and that there is not a “them and us” attitude which can be disheartening for a more junior member of staff.

Everyone is extremely friendly and supportive and even working in a rather small department it feels like everyone is on the same page for doing the best we can and providing the best service for clients.

Emily Pope - Family Law Solicitor

I joined Neves in September 2018 as a trainee solicitor following the completion of my Law degree and LPC. My first seat was in the family department. As a trainee I was given a lot of responsibility and exposure to complex cases, which has been great experience. Both of the partners who supervised me were more than happy to take time out of their day to discuss my work with me and provide regular feedback, which really helped me to develop and learn.

A large proportion of my training was spent in the Family department, complimented by seats in Conveyancing and Dispute resolution. Having experienced working in the matrimonial, conveyancing and dispute resolution teams, I have been able to transfer my knowledge from one department to the next and this has helped me to advise clients where there is a crossover, such as a property transfer arising from a financial order on divorce or making enforcement applications for non-compliance with court orders. 

I qualified as a Family Law solicitor on 3rd December 2020 following the successful completion of my training contract. I was delighted to qualify into the family department in December 2020 working under the supervision of Head of Department, Beth Woodward. 

Whilst every business has a hierarchy, at Neves I feel you are treated equally regardless of your position at the firm and you really feel that your opinion is valued. I feel that I could phone any person in my address book with a question, regardless of seniority, and they would be more than happy to answer it.

Lucy Madley - Senior Associate, Residential Property and Conveyancing

I joined Neves at the start of May 2021, in the midst of a pandemic, which was a nerve-wracking thing to do with so much uncertainty but I need not have worried!

On my first day, I joined a really busy team at the height of the SDLT holiday (anyone that is in the conveyancing industry knows at that time everything was a bit crazy). With such an experienced hardworking and supportive team, Neves made what could have been a daunting time, a real pleasure, with their professional work ethic mirroring mine. Before I knew it I felt like part of the team!

I think it is great that partners make themselves available and approachable and they have made me feel very supported at all levels.

I was looking forward to getting the chance to work with Jane Joseph as she has such an outstanding reputation locally, and I haven’t been disappointed.
