(based on 14 ratings in 2019)


"Solicitors and partners from the highest level downwards are approachable and willing to take the time to provide constructive feedback. Hard work is recognised."
First year trainee, Exeter
"You will be allocated a supervisor and they will help you to manage your workload and organise catch-ups throughout your seat. Everyone is very approachable and there is no hierarchy so trainees generally feel comfortable asking questions and working directly with partners. There is an appraisal process mid-way through your seat and at the end of your seat, which helps you to track your progress."
First year trainee, London
"I am a mentor to two external and one internal individuals, even at this stage of my career. We have access to a number of informal mentors and have mid- and end-of-seat reviews with our supervisors along with more informal feedback at all stages from all levels."
Second year trainee, Birmingham
"Most partners and senior associates are always approachable and happy to chat. This is one of the strong points at Trowers and no one takes themselves too seriously."
Second year trainee, London
"I've had two fantastic supervisors (an associate and senior associate) who are very approachable, very generous with their time and a pleasure to work with. Various partners have also taken extra time to mentor me and give advice."
First year trainee, Manama, Bahrain
