Trainees
All our trainees are supervised daily by a partner and have the opportunity to cover four major areas of law at any of our four offices. Wherever possible we try to arrange for the trainee solicitors to be in their chosen area during the last seat. The supervising partner conducts appraisals at six-month intervals and regular contact is maintained with the Principal throughout the period.
For law graduates joining the firm on a fixed term contract as a paralegal, there are opportunities for progression to a training contract, subject to performance. It is the firm’s approach where individuals wish to qualify as a solicitor that, wherever possible and subject to operational needs, on successful completion of the training contract, a permanent contract may be offered.
