I’m delighted to share some great news which makes me so happy.

In the results which have just been released Brabners has been ranked very highly in a number of categories by the prestigious LEX 100 guide, which is the leading guide to UK law firms for aspiring trainee solicitors. The Lex 100 annual trainee survey is a comprehensive assessment of law firm training contracts and out of the 145 leading law firms which were assessed by Lex 100 we came:

  • 1st for Approachability
  • 1st for Work/Life Balance
  • 4th for Living up to expectations
  • 4th for Social Life
  • 5th for Inclusiveness

I'm really proud of this fantastic achievement. We are a people-oriented business and nurturing our future stars is so important.

We have an excellent record of employing and retaining top quality trainee solicitors, many of whom stay with our firm and make an enormous contribution over the long term - and I'm not just saying that as I started my career as a trainee at Brabners.... :)

I'm delighted to see our training contract program receive such high praise.

I think it speaks volumes for our strategic objective to be the “Employer of Choice” and I’m particularly pleased with the recognition of our Inclusiveness – we are striving to continue to do far better on all aspects of Equality, Diversity & Inclusion.

My thanks go to our fantastic trainees (including those who recently qualified, all of whom have stayed with us), and my many partners and colleagues who all play a vital part in supporting the development and progress of our trainees.
