Further growth for national firm Browne Jacobson with 17 new trainees

14 September 2021

Browne Jacobson has welcomed 17 aspiring new lawyers to its trainee scheme for 2021 – 2023 as it continues to grow its national business.

The new recruits have joined 17 trainees already at the firm, bringing the total number of trainee solicitors at Browne Jacobson to 34.

The trainees are split across the firm’s national five office network:

  • Birmingham – three
  • Exeter - one
  • London – four
  • Manchester - two
  • Nottingham – seven

They will work across various key sectors and service lines for the firm including: construction, corporate finance, employment, financial services, insolvency, commercial, education, private client, banking, social care, technical claims, real estate, litigation, clinical negligence and inquests & advisory.

Seven of the new starters have come via the firm’s successful vacation scheme which launched in 2015. The summer vacation scheme provides an opportunity for prospective trainees to undertake genuine work whilst learning more about the firm. Six of the trainees are also internal candidates, where the firm has spotted the potential of people around the business to develop into solicitors of the future.

In addition, the firm’s Exeter office will also be welcome a new pupil barrister to join our in-house advocacy team.

Richard Medd, Managing Partner at Browne Jacobson, commented on the new appointments:

“I’m so excited to welcome our new trainees to the firm. We get so many high-quality applications, I’m confident we’ve appointed the best people to support the future needs of our business and our clients, and to add to the vibrant people culture that the firm is known for.

“We’re seeing strong growth across the business and we’ve been able to accelerate the start dates for seven trainees who were due to start with us in 2022. That’s a brilliant reflection on the strength of our business and how the economy is recovering from the impact of the Pandemic.

“Our trainees get exposure to a broad range of legal matters and the firm’s diverse and high-quality client portfolio. That gives them a great foundation for their legal careers and lets them see and develop connections for themselves and the firm which help the firm strengthen our client offering.”
