The Lex 100 verdict on SAS Daniels LLP
With locations in Stockport, Macclesfield, Congleton and Chester, SAS Daniels’ place in the North West’s legal market is well established. Variety and a small-firm-feel coupled with an impressive client list and local knowledge is a major draw for trainees. Often coming through the firm as a paralegal or as an apprentice, trainees praise the firm’s values and approach: ‘I have worked at SAS Daniels since 2013 doing an apprenticeship and then when completing my LLB part-time over four years. I always wanted to complete my training here’. The firm is well known for its friendliness and individualised training; as one trainee comments, ‘there are some great people who have helped me in the time I have been at the firm, and with whom I have developed friendships’. Plus there’s ‘lots of client contact and a direct link between the partners and even the CEO’. Negatives mentioned include remuneration and communication/differences between offices, yet these are outweighed by positive responses. As one trainee summarises: ‘I grew up and live in the area so was aware of the firm because it has always been very active in the community. This was something that was really important to me and drew me to SAS Daniels – it’s the perfect fit for me’.
