Our People

 

At Rice Craig, we believe the measure of success in a law firm is more than effective legal process; it's about excellence in client care.

Our reputation in both these areas is reflected in the very high client retention we have enjoyed for many years. We take the time to understand our clients’ needs and offer a friendly, personable approach underpinned by sound legal advice. Our highly experienced team is supported by a group of Partners who are experts in their respective fields ensuring that a consistently high level of law practice and client service is achieved.

Rice Craig also carries this care and commitment to excellence internally, offering a supportive team environment where growth and ongoing learning for every staff member is encouraged to ensure growth and continued passion for our work with our clients.
