Firm description and career prospects
Sewell Mullings Logie LLP provides excellent training opportunities for those who are enthusiastic to learn and keen to develop into well-rounded solicitors. We offer a full range of legal services and have a well established client base. We are the largest firm in Cirencester and have been advising clients in London, the Cotswolds and surrounding areas for over 200 years.
The firm prides itself on being progressive and friendly. We have highly motivated employees and excellent retention rates as we recognise the importance of continuing career development and a good work/life balance. We are ideally situated in the heart of the Cotswolds which creates a brilliant working environment.
Main areas of work
We offer extensive experience and advice to our clients across a wide spectrum of areas, including private client, property, litigation, family, commercial, employment, agriculture and equine.
Prospects for trainees are excellent - most trainees are offered a post as an assistant solicitor at the end of their training contract.
Training contract programme
The firm's training is designed to produce its future partners. To achieve this aim, we only recruit one or two trainees at any time and give early responsibility to those who show promise. Our trainees work alongside partners and other senior lawyers and when ready take responsibility for their own files.
Trainees spend six months in each training seat to include private client, property and litgation (incorporating family). We then tailor the last six months of the trainee's seat to suit their interests and our business needs at the time. Trainees are appraised regularly during each seat by their supervisor and the training principal. There is an open door policy among the partners; if at any point a trainee requires clarification or guidance there is always a partner willing to help and guide them in the right direction. This promotes an open and effective working relationship from the outset.
Trusts and estates, property, family and litigation.
