Work Anniversary: Carl Hughes

Here at Gouldson Legal we are proud to employ a team of experts, who really care about the outcomes of our clients – from our dedicated administration staff all the way through to our senior legal team.

We think that workplace culture plays a very important role in the overall success of our firm and the experience of our clients – team members who enjoy coming to work and like where they work are always going to go above and beyond. That is why we put such strong emphasis on who we hire and how they fit into our team – they have to care about the work they do and the experience of their clients as much as the rest of us do!

We’re proud of the team that we have built and that fact that we all actually like coming to work, we’re also proud that so many of our team stick around for the long-haul!

For example, our Senior Associate Carl Hughes has been with our firm for 4 years today (25th of March 2017)! So we decided to see why he has stuck around and what he is looking forward to in the future.


Catching up with Carl to reflect on his 4 years at Gouldson Legal

What is your favourite thing about working at Gouldson Legal?
The people. I really enjoy the culture they have here and working with a great bunch of people.

What was the firm like when you started?
The firm was a slightly different size. It’s been different to some other firms I have worked in – it always had a sense of purpose and fun and is definitely more genuine.

How has the firm changed in your time here?
The main change has been a different perspective towards our marketing. Now we’re getting out there – we’ve created a better defined brand based on our values.

What are you looking forward to in your coming year with Gouldson Legal?
I’m looking forward to our firm going from strength to strength, more challenges with further successes for our clients.

How do you spend your time away from the office?
Over the last year a lot of my time has been spent dabbling in property renovations. Not quite The Block, but getting there!


A big thank-you to Carl for catching up with us to answer these questions! If you would like to know more about our team, you can check us all out here.
