Cartmell Shepherd has been recognised for the quality of training delivered to the region’s future solicitors, winning in seven categories in this 2015’s Lex 100, the UK’s student guide to law.

A confidential survey, sent out each year to trainee solicitors provides a no holds barred, invaluable guide to life as a trainee in firms throughout the UK. Trainees are asked to rate their respective firms in a number of different areas, such as quality of work, client contact and social life.

Cartmells were singled out for praise in seven categories this year: quality of work, job satisfaction, friendliness, client contact, work/life balance, social life and living up to expectations. An impressive tally.

Every year the Lex 100 compares each firm to a fictional character. This year Cartmells were compared to Ned Stark from ‘Game of Thrones’, being described as a ‘tactician who inspires loyalty’.

Practice Manager Scott Garson says “It’s wonderful to have been recognised by the Lex 100 again this year. We have some very talented trainees and take real pride in providing them with the best possible training we can.”
