Russell-Cooke will host two open days on 8 and 17 March 2016 aimed at graduates eligible to apply for a training contract to start in 2018.

As a firm, we are unique in that we offer services to a mix of commercial, not-for-profit, regulatory and individual clients. Our variety of expertise means we can offer an unusually wide range of experience in areas including high-value commercial property, corporate law, charity, professional regulation, private client, family law as well as dispute resolution.

Lex 100 rates us in a number of categories and we are known for offering challenging but rewarding work and giving our trainees a high level of responsibility. Trainees work in a friendly and supportive environment that looks to encourage their own unique development.

Graduates attending our open days will have the opportunity to meet experienced practitioners from a variety of departments and will meet and chat with our current trainee solicitors.

Alison Regan, our recruitment partner, comments on the success of our previous open days, “our open days are intended to give prospective trainee solicitors a glimpse into life as a solicitor at Russell-Cooke. Experience has shown that what attendees wanted more than anything was to speak to our fee-earners about their day-to-day work, and to trainees about their training contract experience at Russell-Cooke. We had really fantastic feedback about our open days last year and would encourage applications from anyone in a position to apply for a training contract.”

Renowned for our breadth of work, unstuffy nature and high retention rate; Russell-Cooke is excellent preparation for a successful legal career and this is a good opportunity to meet practitioners at the firm and discuss life at our firm.

Andrew Morgan, trainee in the family team, shares his experience of life at Russell-Cooke, "As a trainee, I’ve worked for a diverse range of businesses and individuals, spanning a wide range of practice areas. I have enjoyed real responsibility from day one, often working on my own files and always supported by my team. My training has provided the in-depth experience needed to develop my skills to hit the ground running on qualification ".

Applications for our open days are now closed.
