We have a diverse workforce, and are one of the very few large practices to achieve a 50:50 gender balance. Talented people come to Pollard Thomas Edwards from all sorts of places and backgrounds, and around 22 different languages are spoken.

PTE enjoys high levels of staff retention – and also a significant number of returnees. This is partly down to the work we do and the way we do it, and partly to the sociable environment in our beautiful canal-side offices – illustrated by our Thursday lunch tradition, whereby we each take it in turns to cook for the whole practice and guests.

Our headquarters lies on the Regent’s Canal about five minutes walk from Angel, Islington. Diespeker Wharf enjoys one of the most tranquil locations on London’s canal network and provides a great working environment for our staff, clients and collaborators. We acquired and converted the Victorian timber mill in the mid-90s and won a Civic Trust Commendation in 2000. Our garden wins prizes every year.
