Warner Goodman LLP has been announced as the Lex 100 Winner for 2016/17 in the category of client contact.  The Lex 100 is a comprehensive annual survey of trainee solicitors from across the UK, in which 3,000 trainees evaluate their firms on a number of criteria including job satisfaction, work quality, work/life balance, remuneration, and client contact, to name a few.

During the survey, trainees are also asked to provide more information about their recognised period of training, such as why they chose the particular firm and the most positive element of working with the firm. 

In the results from the survey, Warner Goodman LLP was commended for its ‘local reputation’ across Hampshire, as well as the work environment for them stating that the firm ‘has a family-like feel about it’.  Dan Thompson, Trainee Partner, commented, “This atmosphere is reflected in the approach we have with our clients; working with them as individuals and in a language they can understand, whether that be in their personal or business life.  One trainee commented on the ‘approachable and friendly’ nature of colleagues, another element that spreads into how we work with our clients.

“Our mission Statement is ‘delighting our clients is our driving force’, and so to have been recognised for this by our trainee solicitors is a rewarding moment,” concludes Dan.  “One comment from a trainee in the survey mentioned they had received ‘good feedback from my clients on the first file in my name’; a commendable time in the first steps of their career.  We ensure our trainees are involved in working with our clients to encourage confidence and independence in them, as well as to show them that we are keen to invest in them and see them progress.  We have a wonderful history with our trainee solicitors and a number of our current Partners began their career as trainees, myself included.  To be recognised by our trainees is a proud moment for all of us as we place our trainees in high esteem. ”
