Lex 100 is the ‘student guide to the UK’s premier law firms' showing the highest scoring firms in thirteen categories, as rated by their own trainees.
The researchers send online surveys to the UK’s largest law firms and this year, Lex 100 collated over 3,000 completed surveys, which provided them with a particularly robust sample to analyse.
At Leathes Prior we are proud to announce our results from Lex 100, where we have been classed as award “winners” in seven out of the thirteen categories. Each year law firms are assessed in different categories, and in comparison to other national firms, we are top in the following:
Social life 95.7 1st in UK
Living up to expectations 92.8 2nd in UK
Work/life balance 92.8 2nd in UK
Friendliness of firm 95.7 3rd in UK
Job satisfaction 88.5 4th in UK
Client contact 91.4 6th in UK
Stress level 78.5 7th in UK
The Lex 100 survey and results are not only important for those considering options of future Training Contracts, but also offer an excellent opportunity for trainees to tell us what we are doing well and what we could do better.
Dan Chapman, Partner and the Training Principal responsible for the recruitment and training of our trainee solicitors, commented “It is very pleasing to receive these good rankings. We have long since considered our approach to both trainee recruitment and training to be innovative and the envy of many other firms, but to receive some validation of that is excellent. Training future solicitors is a fundamental part of our business plan and many of our Partners came through this process – only in May this year did we promote yet another former trainee solicitor to the ranks of Partner, in Tessa Bonser.”
