Firm description and career prospects
Established in 1913 by Herbert Stanley Tee in Bishop’s Stortford, now a major regional law firm with five offices – in Bishops Stortford, Cambridge, Chelmsford, Royston and Saffron Walden.
We have 21 partners within eight specialist departments and more than 240 staff including solicitors, tax experts, wealth management advisers, asset managers and support staff.
We converted to an innovative corporate structure in March 2010 with partners becoming shareholders in Trust Tees PLC.
On the 22 March 2013 we were licensed by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority as an alternative business structure.
We are signatories to the Law Society Diversity and Inclusion Charter.
Our turnover is in excess of £15m.
Our standards of excellence are confirmed with our Lexcel accreditation.
We are listed in The Lawyer 200 as one of the top 200 firms in the UK.
We have excellent Legal 500 rankings for 2016. We are recommended as a top tier firm in two practice areas and as a leading firm in another 22 practice areas.
All employees are actively supported through training and development to progress through the firm. Our retention rate is high - some of our partners started as trainees.
The firm contributes £5,000 maintenance grant to assist during LPC course.
We offer vacation placements for second year undergraduates mainly over the summer, Christmas and Easter periods for one week, during which time the placement student usually spends a day in each of five different departments to hopefully see the full range of the firm's work. We do, however, welcome applications from individuals who may be able to attend placements outside the standard university holidays.
Applications are considered on a rolling basis until all placement slots are filled. However, in light of the high volume of applications, particularly in relation to summer placements, the deadline for each summer is the preceding 31 March.
Applications by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Training contract programme
Training consists of four seats of six months each in four different departments within any of our five offices. Working in a supportive team with a partner/associate/solicitor/licensed conveyancer. Trainees are actively encouraged to get involved in marketing, networking, training and social events hosted by the firm. The environment is enthusiastic and friendly, with trainees having regular meetings with their supervisors to ensure their progress.
