Choosing your Training Contract

Choosing your training contract is one of the most important career decisions you will make and it’s important that you think carefully about the Firm you want to work for. At Withy King you will get all the support and training you require in order to gain a broad spectrum of experience. You will be part of the team, doing real work from day one, helping you to qualify as an exceptional solicitor.

“What’s different at Withy King is the cultural attitude of the firm. It’s informal and as a trainee that really helps if you need to approach a partner for guidance on a particular question. I’ve never been refused that time or attention, no matter which department I’ve worked in. It’s a nurturing environment and I’ve never been scared of anyone or any situation. It makes a tremendous difference to have a positive learning environment”– Lucy Crawford, Solicitor (Clinical Negligence)
