BWB has a unique profile. We want to attract the best possible potential commercial lawyers who understand the work we undertake, the clients we work for and who are committed to our ethos.
Amongst our current partners, we have a number of former trainees including William Garnett, now Head of Employment, Philip Kirkpatrick, Rosamund McCarthy, Julian Blake, Abbie Rumbold and Thea Longley all in our Charity & Social Enterprise team, and Robert Oakley in our Dispute Resolution team.
Many of our assistant solicitors are former trainees and on their way to being the partners of the future. Last year three of our trainees stayed with the firm and we would hope to be able to retain all our current trainees in the future. We are also looking for candidates with interests outside work which we would expect to be maintained if not developed.
As part of our commitment to the Law Society's Diversity Charter, we recently undertook a firm-wide diversity survey.
