Three is the magic number for national law firm
Published: 02 Oct 2015
Aberdein Considine is one of Scotland’s fastest-growing law firms, with 23 partners and more than 300 members of staff.
In the past year, it has invested more than £1million in a new Glasgow legal office, a revamped corporate headquarters in Aberdeen’s Bon-Accord Crescent and expanded into Stirling with the acquisition of local firm Muirhead Buchanan.
As a result, it now has 18 offices spread throughout Scotland, including the key legal cities of Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Perth, Glasgow and Stirling. The company is best known for its property services and is now ranked among the biggest legal names in Scotland.
And now, three lucky people are being given a fantastic opportunity to work for them.
Aberdein Considine plans to take on five trainees in 2016 – and has pledged to up this to eight in 2017 to help us reach our aim to create 100 apprentices in 100 days.
The three additional trainee solicitor positions bring us ever closer to our total with James Dun’s House, Ocean Kinetics, Macdonald Hotels and Brodies all pledging 13 apprentices between them this week.
Jacqueline Law, managing partner of Aberdein Considine, said: “At Aberdein Considine, we have always seen the time spent training our young lawyers as an investment in the future of the firm.
“The vast majority of partners and associates started here as trainees, including myself. I enjoyed a hugely rewarding traineeship just as the firm was growing.
“There are no glass ceilings within the firm and those with talent, drive and ambition will see these characteristics recognised at an early stage. We are a full-service law firm and our trainees have the opportunity to work in our extremely successful departments.
“We expect hard work and enthusiasm from all our trainees but in return we strive to balance their training with an active work-related social life.”
trainee solicitor for Aberdein Considine, joined the company as a paralegal in 2013 after finishing university.
“After a year, I was offered a traineeship to become a lawyer, which was fantastic,” he said.
“As the firm works in multiple legal disciplines, I have been able to experience a lot in my first year. I have been working in our dispute resolution department, taking on debt recovery, employment and professional negligence work.
“If you do well here, people are always willing to give you a chance. People are also willing to put their trust in you and let you take on challenging work.”
