The awards, organised by AllAboutLaw.co.uk, 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.
“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:

The firm provides an excellent environment to learn, participate and challenge yourself as a trainee.”
