Who we are 

At Michelmores we work to three key brand principles which we believe help our lawyers to become 'more than just lawyers' to our clients:

Clients' Shoes

We place our clients at the heart of everything we do. This means we are looking for people who can put themselves in our clients’ shoes and be able to see the world from their perspective. Our aim is to understand our client’s business challenges, listen to their needs and provide solutions. You will be exposed to a wide variety of clients throughout your training contract, providing you with a rich experience to develop your client skills.

Success as a Team

Collaboration across the firm is vital to being able to provide the best possible service to our clients. We also recognise that it is the difference between people that is the source of creativity. We will provide you with the support you need to understand the different roles of colleagues across the firm, and by recognising and valuing the strengths of individuals and working collaboratively, you can play an integral role in helping us provide the best solutions for our clients.

Forging Opportunities 

Our aim is to be at the forefront of peoples’ mind, to do this we need to build individual reputations, create networks, make introductions, recommend colleagues and develop new relationships. Our lawyers are constantly looking to link people together, to create networks not just for Michelmores but for our clients too. As a trainee solicitor, you will be encouraged to see the opportunities and help us spot the gaps and bring people together.
