Trainee Solicitor 2006-2008

My experience at Edwin Coe LLP has taught me that there is a lot more to training than standing in front of a photocopier. From very early on I was involved in client interviews and was responsible for managing a relatively heavy workload. Whilst challenging, it equipped me with the skills required for qualification.
One of the best aspects of training with the firm has been sharing an office with a partner. Although this seems a little daunting at first, you gain a lot from this set-up. I really appreciated the fact that the partners are keen to seek your thoughts on issues as this ensures that you make a meaningful contribution from day one.

Sharing an office also provides an excellent opportunity to observe partners ‘in action’ and to learn from them. The friendly atmosphere is most conducive to learning and developing.
