Leading law firm, Ashfords LLP, is delighted to announce a further promotion of four highly talented Trainee Solicitors who have been offered newly qualified Solicitor positions. Due to the firm's continued growth and expansion, 10 out of its 15 Trainee Solicitor intake have successfully qualified with the firm this year.
Since February 2018, Ashfords has offered 14 newly qualified positions across Corporate, Commercial, Employment, Real Estate, Planning, Construction and Infrastructure, Property Litigation and Trusts and Estates.
The firm's comprehensive training contracts allow applicants a chance to work alongside Partners and Lawyers who are recognised as leaders in their field. For the sixth year running, Ashfords has been voted by students and graduates as a Guardian UK top 300 employer.
Furthermore, Ashfords is proud that 20% of its current Partners and many other Lawyers completed their training contracts with the firm. Committed to a ‘recruit to retain’ policy, as evidenced by the firm's high retention rates, Ashfords see Trainees as its Partners of the future.
Ashfords' commitment to excellence is reflected by the quality of its people, its client testimonials and industry awards. The firm has always focused on its people, and seeks individuals who have ambition, are commercially aware and who are never afraid to put forward innovative ideas.
Training Principal and Partner, Andrew Worley, commented: "We are delighted that so many of our trainees have accepted positions with Ashfords following successful completion of their training contract. It demonstrates that our commitment to recruiting, training and retaining the best lawyers is working, and will enable us to continue to grow and provide our clients with the best legal service possible now and in the future."
