Bevan Brittan, is taking its largest graduate trainee and apprentice intake for seven years as the firm continues to grow.

Eleven graduate trainees and three apprentices are joining the firm this month, across its offices in Bristol, Birmingham, Leeds and London. A further two apprentices are also due to join the firm in January.

The move comes after Bevan Brittan recorded revenue growth of 8% in the last financial year, taking turnover to £37.7m. The firm also expanded physically, opening a new office in Leeds in September 2015 which now holds seven partners.

Bevan Brittan has taken graduate trainees for many years – but the apprenticeship scheme is much newer, with this year’s intake being the second cohort after a first intake of three apprentices in September 2015. The apprenticeship is open to candidates who have completed their A levels, and those who are taken on will do a two year programme at Bevan Brittan which will see them achieve CILEx accredited qualifications, setting them on the path to becoming a Chartered Legal Executive.

Commenting on the intake, Duncan Weir, Managing Partner at Bevan Brittan, said:

“We are delighted to be taking in a set of talented young graduates and school leavers who all show great potential for the future. The continued, successful growth of the firm in terms of clients, revenues and people means that we can take our largest intake for many years. 

“We are committed to developing a pipeline of new generation lawyers. Through our apprenticeship scheme, we also want to support diverse pathways into the profession that open up opportunities to a wider set of young people.

“These lawyers-to-be join at an exciting time for Bevan Brittan as the firm continues on its trajectory of growth.”
