I am a Solicitor in the Family Team, having joined the firm as a Trainee. During my training contract I spent six months with the Commercial Property and Agriculture Teams and six months with the Construction Team. The rest of my training contract was spent with the Family Team, which was invaluable as it enabled me to build on my experience and take on more responsibility over the year before qualifying.
Since qualifying I have built my case load whilst receiving support and guidance from colleagues. My work is varied on a day to day basis and there is never a dull moment. I feel proud to be part of the family team and I get enormous job satisfaction.
The Family Team and the firm as a whole are very sociable. The Family Team often go out socially - the team trip to the Christmas panto is always a big hit. The firm regularly organises events which are always really fun and a great opportunity to get together with colleagues from the other offices.
