The highlight for me as a trainee is working with Partners who are truly dedicated to helping you develop as a solicitor – I frequently think how lucky I am to feel able to seek their guidance and know that they will be more than happy to help me.
I like the friendliness of the people, the quality of the work and the high level of responsibility I am given as a trainee, the sense of camaraderie amongst the trainees – it has been a great experience.
I chose to apply to the firm because I wanted a well-regarded firm outside of London that offered high quality ‘city-type’ work, where I wouldn’t spend my training contract chained to a photocopier – TW has proved a perfect fit. I liked that there were several offices and a wide selection of departments for training with excellent reputations.
Summer placements are a great way to get to know a firm and for them to get to know you. You are then in a much stronger position when applying for a training contract.
