This is a company/commercial route training contract. This means that you will be seated in the company/commercial department on a day to day basis throughout your training with us.

You will also gain experience in other departments as and when required and in particular will train in contentious work such as family law, civil litigation and/or employment law. 

We value our trainee solicitors as assets of the firm and will provide high quality training and support throughout. You will be supervised by a partner and as your training progresses you will be given more responsibility and client contact. You will also be required to attend firm events and other networking events where appropriate. Must be able to work in any branch offices of the firm within Kent.
