Wragge & Co wins 'best trainer' title at Training and Recruitment Awards
Wragge & Co has won the best trainer award in the national/large regional firm category at LawCareers.Net's Training and Recruitment Awards.
Chosen following a survey of more than 2,500 trainees from three annual intakes, Wragge & Co was commended for providing trainees with "lots of responsibility" and encouraging "additional training opportunities". The firm won the award from a shortlist comprising Browne Jacobson, Burges Salmon, Clarke Willmott, Cobbetts, Irwin Mitchell and Shoosmiths.
Senior partner Quentin Poole said: "We are committed to providing comprehensive training in a supportive environment, which gives our trainees as much client contact and responsibility as they want. We see this as the best way to develop technically excellent and commercially focused solicitors. This award is a great result for the firm."
