Trainees spend six months in four of the firm’s five key practice areas, working with a range of people from senior partners to more recently qualified solicitors. The firm has mentoring, allocated seat supervisors and training and appraisal programmes, which nurture the development of technical expertise and client advisory skills. Trainees are expected at an early stage to take responsibility for their own files and to participate in managing the client’s work with appropriate supervision and are encouraged to take part in the firm’s business development activities.
