DMH Stallard short-listed for two top training awards

08 Sep 2017

The awards, organised by, recognise firms in the legal sector that offer school leavers, students and graduates the best training and support.


We have been nominated for the Best Training Contract and John Yates, Partner at the firm, has been short-listed for Best Training Principal. 


John Yates joined us as a trainee 12 years ago and became the firm’s training principal in 2014.


John said:


“It’s a pleasure,  and also rewarding, to receive these nominations as it’s our junior lawyers who have concluded that we offer the best training contract and have put me forward as best training principal. 


“These young lawyers are the lifeblood of our business. It’s our responsibility to ensure that they receive the best training possible.  Our high retention rates in a competitive market and the high quality of our newly-qualified lawyers speak volumes.


“As training principal, I seek to marry our trainees’ aspirations with the firm’s business needs - not always an easy task but clearly one with which we are making good progress!”


Jay Barnett, Trainee Solicitor at DMH Stallard, said:


“DMH Stallard recognises that real, hands on experience is the best way to learn and to that end have encouraged responsibility and client contact from day one, whilst always having the expertise and supervision of the partners and other colleagues.   The firm provides an excellent environment to learn, participate and challenge yourself as a trainee.”
