Marking our past, present and future

2020 marks the 150 year anniversary since our foundation. In 1870, Sir William Barclay Peat joined the firm which would later take his name. So for the next twelve months, we’ll be reflecting on what we’ve achieved so far as well as focusing on the future of the firm.

We’ll be marking this milestone year in a number of innovative ways, including introducing bold new environmental targets, an exhibition and a firm-wide awards programme  to celebrate colleagues who go above and beyond to live our values and do the right thing.

Great people, great work

We’ve thrived since 1870 for one reason: we’ve sought out the best people and we’ve supported them to do their best work. For decade after decade, talented people who trained at our firm have used those skills to do extraordinary things for our clients and for our communities. And we’re still focused on attracting the best, because working with us means taking on challenging problems and coming up with solutions as part of a team. Imagine you could be a part of our future too.
