A Shropshire law firm has been nominated for a national award – in the same category it won last year. Lanyon Bowdler Solicitors will be going for the double when the LawCareers.Net Awards are presented in London on Thursday 17 May. The firm, which has offices in Shrewsbury, Oswestry, Telford, Ludlow, Hereford and Bromyard, has been recognised again for its training programme and been nominated in the Best Trainer-Small Firm category.
The firm’s training partner Colin Spanner says, “Lanyon Bowdler usually takes on four trainees each year and training contracts usually have a two-year duration, so this means we normally have at least eight trainees with us at any one time.
“Our trainees generally spend six months in each ‘seat’ so they experience four areas of work within the company.
“We’re delighted to be nominated for this award again.”
