Firm description and career prospects
Maples Teesdale are the UK’s leading commercial property law specialists, providing innovative, full service and truly partner led services to UK based and international clients
The main area of work is therefore commercial property – sales and purchase, development, leasing, funding etc. In addition the firm has specialist groups to provide clients with corporate, finance, construction, planning and litigation advice.
Trainees will normally spend time in each of the main specialist areas during their contract. The firm encourages team working and tries to involve trainees as much as possible both in fee-earning work and in marketing and training.
The firm normally offers trainees a permanent position as associate solicitor on qualification if we can offer experience in the area in which they want to concentrate. The firm expects that in due course a number of the current trainees will become partners in the firm.
Training contract programme
Training in the firm is largely done on a one-to-one basis. Given the relatively small numbers involved, there is little formal training but there are regular know-how sessions provided for staff and partners in which trainees participate along with all the other professional staff. The firm is committed to ensuring that all trainees have a thorough grounding in all parts of the law which are relevant to the property industry.
