Tapestry was founded in 2011 by Janet Cooper and Bob Grayson. Janet was a partner at Linklaters law firm for over 20 years and global head of the employee share plans department, and Bob a former in-house counsel at Shell, managing global compliance for 100,000+ employees. The firm therefore brings together the expertise of a City law firm and the practicalities of managing major global projects.
Our approach has been to establish our offices in Yorkshire, with offices in Sheffield and Leeds, which offers much better value than being based in the City of London.
We offer agile working to our staff. 75% of our lawyers are women. Our goal has been to provide interesting and challenging work for our team, working for some of the best companies in the world and to provide a happy and fun place to work.
Our shared values are important to us and guide how we conduct ourselves, the work we do and our relationships with our clients and community
We do the right thing at all times and in all circumstances - in all that we do. Experienced professionals committed to our clients.
We care about our clients and strive to build open and honest relationships in order to provide the best support. We care about each other and about the communities in which we work and live. We support those members of our team who give their time and talent in activities which have a positive impact on their local communities or global projects.
We will provide the absolute best service to our global clients - the best legal and tax advice through sensible and creative solutions.
Combining many years' of experience in major law and accountancy firms and global companies whilst also embracing change - maximising the efficiencies of the internet and e-tools, virtual working arrangements and the latest technologies.
Do more with less
We recognise companies are under significant budget constraints and pressure to cut costs. We aim to be flexible and help with cost-savings.
The world of executive and employee share plans is increasingly more complex and constantly changing. We provide regular training for our team and our clients, and are committed to the share plan world through active memberships of the organisations which share best practice - including the Global Equity Organisation, the National Association of Stock Plan Professionals, the European Centre for Employee Share Ownership, Share Plan Lawyers Organisation and ProShare.
We are interested and passionate about the work that we do. Working is a major part of our lives so we want to have fun and enjoy working together!
