Survey Results - Trainee feedback on Thrings LLP

The Lex 100 verdict on Thrings LLP

South Western full-service firm Thrings is known for its ‘inclusiveness’ and ‘great people’. A trainee found that ‘I enjoyed my vacation scheme as it is a very friendly and inclusive firm; I left my vac scheme feeling like I was already a part of it’. With a small intake size, Thrings offers ‘more focused training rather than being one of many’. Trainees rate the variety the firm provides, commenting that Thrings ‘is willing to provide you with opportunities – whether this is client contact, variety/challenging work or networking which as a trainee is exactly what you want’. The friendliness and the fact that ‘everyone in the firm is approachable’ wins plaudits. Plus, ‘there is not the rigid hierarchy that you get with some firms’. Trainees found that ‘moving around the Thrings offices can be both good and bad. It’s good as it affords you the opportunity to meet new people but also means you’re never fully settled. Although working from home for the last year has made this much less of a factor!’ Highlights include ‘attending the Royal Courts of Justice in London for an approval hearing, when I was only a week in to my training contract’, ‘being offered an NQ job’ and ‘assisting with a case being heard at the Supreme Court’. Thrings’ culture and variety of work are great assets and if you’re looking in the South West, it’s a strong contender.
