Blake Morgan LLP
Blake Morgan is a law firm with a range of 70 legal services for commercial and private clients, across many sectors, regionally, nationally and internationally.
We act for large corporates, entrepreneurs and owner-managed businesses, public sector and charity organisations. We have specific expertise in banking and finance; central, devolved and local government; charities; development and construction; education; health and social care; regulators; retail and leisure and social housing. We act for private clients in wills and inheritance planning, tax and trusts, to the administration of landed estates, residential, property and family law. We give our clients a single point of contact to manage their affairs; one who makes things happen in our specialist teams so that our clients get the advice that they need.
We believe business and community are inextricably linked and we aim to play an active role locally and regionally, focusing our energy, enthusiasm and funding in the areas where we can have most impact. Our people are keen to give something back to the local communities where they work and live. Every year, they are involved in a host of fundraising, volunteering and mentoring initiatives, which benefit hundreds of charities, organisations and individuals. Our firm is proud of their efforts and keen to support them in every way we can, including charity/office partnerships and matching funds raised by teams and individuals.
Our vision is to be the firm of choice for our clients and our people. Our aim is to make a difference - through exemplary service, teamwork, integrity and innovation - for our clients, our people and our communities.
The Blake Morgan training contract is made up of four six-month seats in various areas of the business giving a wide range of experience and opportunity. Although our first-year trainee seats are often selected through business need, during your second year we will endeavour to give you the seats of your choosing including secondments to some of our biggest clients. We recommend coming in with an open mind though, as most people find they love the practice area that they loathed during their LPC. You will also attend your professional skills courses throughout the first year of your training contract.
Our trainees have a wide support network from the graduate recruitment and development officer who will be with you from the day you submit your application to the end of your first year as a newly qualified solicitor, to your seat supervisor, assigned mentor, regional training partner, training principal and the other trainees.
Our trainees are considered a member of the team from the minute they start each seat. You will be invited to attend client meetings, networking events, graduate recruitment events and various training sessions to help you develop your own knowledge, skills and confidence.
