Becoming a solicitor

We are looking to recruit our Partners of the future through our trainee solicitor scheme. Many of our current Partners came to us as students or through our graduate recruitment scheme, entering into a training contract and progressing through the firm. 

We look for trainees who have achieved a high academic standard. Preference will be given to those with a 2.1 degree, although a 2.2 will be considered if you are able to demonstrate additional skills or experience. You must have common sense, the ability to organise yourself and others, as well as being commercially aware. Offering a structured training programme within specialist departments, you will be expected to work as part of a team and have the personality and confidence to excel in whatever you do, both in and out of the work place.

We select trainees internally from either our vacation placement scheme or from our graduate recruitment programme. Emphasis is placed on your aptitude and application during these programmes.

What do our trainees say?

"David Baybut has played a massive part in my progression at the firm. Since joining as a paralegal to now being a trainee solicitor – he has supported me with my work and takes time out of his day to ensure that I not only understand what I am doing, but also why I am doing it. I have worked alongside David on many complex transactions and without his knowledge and guidance I would not be where I am today. He is a great mentor to have. David is very approachable and has great working relationships with both clients and team members.” - Holly Duncanson
