Firm description and career prospects
We are a full-service national law firm with offices in Birmingham, Exeter, London, Manchester and Nottingham – with an impressive client portfolio, including blue chip corporates, local and owner managed businesses, NHS Trusts, major insurers, education and public sector organisations.
We continue to build on our commitment to client service after being awarded a gold star rating by Investor in Customers. We hold the Law Society's Lexcel Practice Management Standard and were reaccredited with the ISO270001:2013 accreditation.
We have delivered consecutive organic growth over the last eight years which is a testament to a successful sector strategy, our commitment to invest in people and infrastructure and an ability to develop long term client relationships based on trust and a true partnership approach.
We’re proud of our people, their achievements and the exceptional levels of service they deliver for our clients and were rated by The Guardian UK 300 as one of the best graduate employers in the country. We share rewards, opportunities to develop and since no two people are the same, we offer packages tailored to individuals. If you thrive on the freedom to fulfil your potential then apply for our graduate opportunities.
Main areas of work
We offer a comprehensive range of quality legal services, with expertise across a number of key private and public sector specialisms including retail, technology, financial services, education, public and independent health, local and central government, brands, international and insurance.
LPC/GDL fees paid, plus maintenance grant for LPC/GDL of £5,000. These will not be paid retrospectively.
We run a two-week summer vacation scheme which typically begins in the last week of June. This scheme is ideally suited to second-year law/third-year non-law undergraduates who are looking to gain experience and possibly secure a training contract. You will be given the opportunity to undertake real work as well as learn more about the legal departments and the firm through interaction with its partners, lawyers and trainees. Applications for the 2019 scheme will open in October 2018, further information is available on our website.
Training contract programme
Trainees start with a comprehensive induction programme, a fast track professional skills course and then go on to undertake an extensive internal trainee development programme. They spend four periods of six months in some of the principle areas of the firm, gaining an overview of the practice. Trainees get great training, a friendly and supportive working environment and real career opportunities. They are also given quality work and exposure to clients from early on, but are supported in achieving results and recognised for their contribution.
