Thomas Eggar has a great reputation for training. There is a relaxed and friendly atmosphere which allows you to fit in very quickly. It was refreshing to be given exposure to clients and encouraged to take on high levels of responsibility almost from day one.
My training contract was inspiring as I had the opportunity to run matters, liaise with clients and assist with large projects and this proved to be an invaluable foundation for life as a newly qualified solicitor.
