The feeling of excitement which follows securing a training contract takes some beating. But how can you be sure that the reality of working at a law firm is everything you wanted and more? These Lex 100 winner firms have not left their trainees wanting.
Recruits at Debevoise & Plimpton have not been disappointed with their decision to train at the firm as they receive ‘more responsibility and client contact’ and enjoy having ‘more value placed’ on their work.
Leathes Prior’s prestige and ‘vast network of local and national clients’ impresses trainees, whilst Mills & Reeve offers ‘exposure to City-level work but with a regional feel’.
One of Osborne Clarke’s trainees ‘wanted to be part of something with great potential’ and is elated that the firm has kept up its side of the bargain.
Anthony Collins Solicitors’ ‘social purpose’ is the jewel in the crown for trainees who enjoy working at a firm which ‘dedicates time to doing good in the community’.
Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy trainees have not been let down by the ‘consistently highly-ranked teams’ which initially drew them to the firm, whilst recruits at Kingsley Napley ‘assist with “real” work on a day-to-day basis’.
Several of the current cohort applied to Farrer & Co for the opportunity to undertake some ‘quite niche work’ and, now, with their training contracts well underway, they are experiencing training ‘of a very high standard’.
Burges Salmon’s six-seat training contract is giving trainees a ‘wider experience’, and having ‘ownership of work’ at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom keeps the recruits on their toes.
