We consider trainee solicitors to be part of our professional team and fundamental to the future progress of the firm. Initiative is expected and rewarded, and subject to ability trainees will be entrusted with responsibility.
On appointment you will be attached to a Partner, and during training will spend six months in each of four different departments, thus gaining a wide variety of legal experience. You will work closely with the Partner and are encouraged to assume responsibility for clients’ matters at an early stage.
Your salary will be reviewed every six months through the training period and our trainees are entitled to 21 days paid holiday a year in addition to public holidays. Additional benefits include participation in the firm’s pension, death in service and healthcare schemes.
Although we make no formal commitment at the outset – nor ask for one – we encourage proven trainees to remain with us after training. We regard our trainees as the main source for our solicitors, and, indeed, future Partners. Many of our present Solicitors, Associates, Principal Associates and Partners trained with the firm.
