Croftons has Investors in People Gold accreditation in recognition of the positive, supportive, high-performance culture we have developed, and the stability and development opportunities we provide.
We're a leading firm in the housing, regeneration and commercial real estate sectors, highly ranked in both the Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners directories, with many ranked and recommended lawyers.
Almost two thirds of our team work none-standard office hours to promote healthy family/home arrangements or to accommodate career development opportunities. We don't have a clock watching/presenteeism/long hours culture.
We recruit people who share our values, respect each other, and are passionate about working in the housing, charity and commercial real estate sectors. We don’t recruit just to build teams.
There's no hierarchy, 'head office' politics or masses of red tape here - just different team members doing different roles. Solicitors are supported by our Managing Partner and Marketing and Finance teams to help them be successful lawyers first and foremost, and everyone contributes to our vision and business direction.
We're financially sound and well-run with nil gearing and careful management of overheads and expenses. We have healthy ambition and growth strategies tempered by remaining sustainable.
We work with over 40 housing associations/local authority clients and a diverse range of other organisations including banks, charities, property management companies, investors, retail, and logistics.
We have a cohesive team all on one site in central Manchester and a positive open-door policy. We don't do silo-working and all our 'departments' work collaboratively to deliver the best results for clients.
Everyone receives encouragement and support for building client relationships and developing new business, and all our legal team, regardless of 'level', interact with clients.
