The September 2018 edition of our online business newsletter, the Business Brief, is available now. You may have already read that we’ve been shortlisted by the Law Society, the national body representing solicitors in England and Wales, for an Excellence award in the field of Learning and Development. If you’re a client or introducer reading this you’ll be pleased – but hopefully not surprised – to know that we invest heavily in making the excellent lawyers we recruit outstanding. If you’re a lawyer reading this and would like to work in a firm that values personal development, you should get in touch.
We find out whether we’ve won the award in October, but just being shortlisted is an honour – there are nine shortlisted firms out of a possible 9,000. Thanks for reading our Business Brief, and we hope you find something useful for your business. As ever, the content is written by our own solicitors with our network of clients and introducers in mind… putting their learning and development to practical use.
