Our trainee solicitors are treated as important lawyers from day one which means the work which is given is on real matters and with real clients. Working alongside our Partners and their teams, trainee solicitors are expected to be ready to face challenges and pressure early on to get the best out of their experience.
We are an exceptionally social firm and have won the ‘most sociable firm in the UK’ award five years in a row (Lex 100). This and our other awards according to our own trainees can be seen on our newsfeed.
The teams at Leathes Prior all work closely together and trainee solicitors are encouraged to get involved in activities across all teams, not just the team where they sit. Aside from the work trainees take on to develop their legal knowledge and ability, they are also given opportunity to develop other skills by taking part in firm-wide events such as Sync the City.
Opportunity for growth
We are a full-service firm which means our trainee solicitors have a choice of seven areas to experience during their training contract. Our size allows us to provide close-knit support from lawyers of all levels and fantastic opportunities to progress and develop. Once qualified, our lawyers also pair up with a mentor who supports their career progression to Associate, Senior Associate and Partner levels.
We have a wide range of benefits to offer our trainees from their very first day at LP including:
- Healthcare cash plan
- Employee Assistance Programme
- Physical and Mental Health First Aid
- Free eye tests
- Annual flu vaccination clinic
- Enhanced parental leave
- Free fruit
- Free Railcard
- Discounted bus travel
- Subsidised city centre parking
- Pension based on full salary and annual advice sessions
- Corporate discounts
In addition to the above we offer all of our future trainee solicitors the option to take up an interest free loan to help fund their LPC course fees.
Further details of the renumeration package will be released to successful candidates upon the receipt of a training contract offer.
