Every year a small group of senior staff are invited to take part in the firm's leadership programme, 'Good to Great'. This programme provides exceptional professional and personal insights and development opportunities that will benefit you for the rest of your life.
We also have a mentoring programme that supports the career development of our high performing staff and junior staff by fostering relationships with more experienced partners and senior lawyers.
You may decide to undertake undergraduate or postgraduate study and we encourage that! If the study is relevant to your current or future roles, we may provide time off to attend lectures and tutorials, pay between 50%-100% of your fees, and provide you with study and exam leave.
We also encourage lawyers to undertake postgraduate study overseas. We may provide financial assistance, leave of absence, and, where appropriate, a referral to an overseas law firm for work experience.
We understand how overwhelming meeting new people and learning new systems can be. We have designed a comprehensive orientation programme for each person who joins the firm. Each programme is tailored to suit the specific role and guarantees that your induction into the firm will be seamless.
