Anthony Collins Solicitors will provide funding for the LPC fees for those who commence their LPC by 2018 and join Anthony Collins Solicitors as trainees by 2021.
When we asked our trainees why they chose us over other firms, they told us it was because of our excellent client care and because we “have a social conscience and are actually prepared to do something about it”. They also said they were given more hands-on experience and considerably more responsibility than their peers at other firms.
We asked what they considered to be the firm’s best features, and these are some of their responses:
It’s the chance to do high-level commercial work in one seat and publicly-funded private client work in another.
A good work/life balance.
The approachability of senior colleagues, including partners.
