Background Image

Our Approach to Traineeship

Whether you are a trainee solicitor or a qualified lawyer, we view your professional development as a continuing process.

We value academic achievement very highly. Many lawyers however, consider that they only really begin the learning curve once they start working – dealing with clients, dealing with colleagues, understanding commercial drivers and giving practical advice, managing time and so on. This is a process that continues right through your career.

We regard it as critically important to give our trainees the best possible start and our trainee programme is designed with that objective as our primary goal.
