I am a Trainee Solicitor working in the Commercial and Specialist Property Division at MW Solciitors Guildford Office.
I chose to apply to McMillan Williams because they are a rapidly expanding, progressive firm. Their excellent reputation in the field, particularly with regard to client relationships speaks volumes about the type of firm they are. Furthermore, the support and diverse training program offered by the firm provides an excellent beginning and ability to progress my legal career in the best way possible.
I was a Paralegal in the Leasehold Enfranchisement department for 16 months prior to becoming a Trainee, during this time I gained an in depth knowledge of a very niche area of law together with developing transferrable skills which will stand me in good stead to progress through my training contract.
Participating in McMillan William’s annual advocacy competition as a Paralegal was a unique and enjoyable experience event, giving paralegals, trainees and newly qualified solicitors the chance to compete against each other and develop their advocacy skills. I am looking forward to participating again as a Trainee.
