Clients are one of the best things about being a lawyer and also one of the most challenging.
Once you are a qualified solicitor, it is likely you will be expected to take on some responsibility for clients, so the more client interaction you receive as a trainee, the better.
The ‘excellent amount of client contact’ at Woodfines holds trainees in good stead for the future.
Similarly, there were reports of ‘good client contact and running your own files’ at Tees Law. Supervisors at Warner Goodman ‘allow you to take on as much responsibility as you want’, which brings with it plenty of contact with the firm’s clients.
‘Impressive clients’ at Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton won the firm its Lex 100 Winner medal in this category.
‘Being given the opportunity to represent clients in Family Law Act applications’ stood out to one trainee at new Lex entrant Duncan Lewis Solicitors, whilst ‘leading a client meeting’ was a best moment for a Leathes Prior recruit.
‘High exposure’ to the client base at Marriott Harrison motivated trainees, as did the ‘excellent client access’ at Blandy & Blandy.
When asked what the best thing is about Wedlake Bell, ‘client liaison’ was key, and in a similar vein, Anthony Collins Solicitors trainees cited the ‘high levels of client contact’ as their favourite thing about the firm.
