We currently help more than 190 clients from a broad range of industries to build engaging employee benefit programmes that attract and retain the best talent.
We’ll work closely with you to understand your business and your industry, so we can design and build an employee benefit programme that adds real value for everyone.
Over the years we’ve built up considerable experience and expertise in the law sector. We currently work with 95 law firms, including a large number of Legal 100 firms, regional firms and US firms with UK offices.
We always go the extra mile to make sure we understand what’s going on within the industry. Through regular research surveys, brainstorming sessions with directors and employee workshops we’ve built up huge expertise which puts us in a great position to advise law firms on their employee benefits programmes.
We get to know our clients, their businesses and their industries really well so we can suggest the best programmes for them. As a real authority on employee benefits, we have a large number of clients within the pharmaceutical sector along with construction and property, financial and insurance, scientific and technical, financial, IT, media, information and communication and professional services.
As a client you’ll get both a dedicated client relationship director and manager, who’ll work closely with you to make sure you get the very best return on the investment you make in employee benefits. You’ll also have access to industry insight through our HR Director’s brainstorming lunches and employee benefit surveys.
After a market review we were so impressed by Portus’ depth of knowledge, research and expertise within the legal sector we appointed them to implement online Flexible Benefits and act as our consultants. Portus not only provided us with an effective online flex solution but also delivered it in a timely, efficient and cost neutral basis! - Charlie Keeling, Former Chief Operating Officer
Field Fisher Waterhouse
Portus’s knowledge of our scheme is excellent and they always have the files close to hand so queries are handled very quickly. The monthly communication reports are well received by the relevant members of the team and certainly keep us on our toes.
Clyde & Co
To meet our specific needs and facilitate the change initiatives in our business we require a consultant who understands the wider legal market. Since working with Portus we have introduced online benefits and Total Reward Statements and, with their knowledge and expertise, continue to expand and enhance this proposition.

I came across Portus purely by accident and were so impressed with their free and unbiased advice that a decision was made to move the management of all our benefits to them. Portus have saved us a considerable amount of money and paperwork after having experienced problems with our long-term provider we are very pleased to have come across Portus.
The Portus team know me and our account really well, so it’s easy to discuss issues and they are always available to give advice or help.

We were changing our pension scheme and Portus took control of the whole process. This was a well-managed and effective process, which had a minimal impact on the day-to-day HR workload. Portus now provide a pensions advice service which is regularly used and appreciated by our employees.

Portus helped give us lots of background market information and cost justification. If employees come to me with issues, it feels very much like we're going to solve this as a team. - Stuart Murty, HR & Development Manager
We have a great relationship with Portus and it's not just a relationship that has strengthened through the years - it's always been solid from the start. We find that working with Portus, on this, and across all our dealings, they go the extra mile to get us the best service possible.
The thing I particularly like about Portus is they're all really nice people and they're all very responsive. They are clearly used to dealing with companies of our size, and they talk to you in language that you can understand. I do feel like we get value for money. - Lindsay Baker, HR Manager for EMEA
We brought all that benefits consultancy under Portus. So they do pensions, benefits, pensions governance, broking, the consultancy. Everything is now under their umbrella. That saved us money. - Tim Cleaver, Director of Reward
