Training Principal introduction
"Over the last couple of years, we have seen incredible interest from people looking to become lawyers, drawn to our values, sectors and people. We have been able to award training contracts to very talented people emerging from university, professional exams and paralegal roles. They are now receiving excellent training that cuts across a range of commercial legal disciplines and legal services for individuals. We aim to recruit and then develop lawyers with technical expertise but also a bit of “spark” and a lot of practicality. We want them to stay at Anthony Collins Solicitors on qualifying so that we can serve our clients even better, bringing new ideas in an everchanging world.
If our purpose of improving lives, communities and society excites you, then come and have a conversation with us about how you can play your part."
Mark Cook, Partner and Training Principal, Anthony Collins Solicitors.
