“When I began my search for a law firm training contract, there were three essential elements: (i) exposure to top quality work and clients, (ii) the opportunity to be responsible for my own caseload from an early stage in my training and (iii) a sensible work life balance. TWM fits the bill perfectly. The clients and work the firm attracts is second to none and the staff are always more than happy to give up their time to support you as a trainee”.
"The two years I spent as a trainee at TWM hold a very special place in my career. I can honestly say that the knowledge, experiences and exposure I experienced during those two years shaped who I am today. I have been with TWM for 15 years now. Why? The list of reasons is long but the people, the opportunities for career progression and the outlook of the firm are high up on the list”.
“I have always enjoyed working at TWM – the three main characteristics that I found really helped my training were the friendliness and approachability of all staff, the responsibility that was given to me at a very early stage (and throughout my training) and the ethos of the firm. TWM is not driven solely by profit and billing clients; it is much more than that. At the heart of everything we do is a desire to make our clients happy and to treat everyone with whom we deal with respect, friendliness and good humour.”
"TWM’s medium size and open culture meant that my training was invaluable in that not only was I responsible for my own caseload from an early stage, I had first hand exposure in liaising with clients and other professionals, and trained within a friendly, approachable environment within which I felt supported and at ease to ask questions and learn throughout my training. Working at TWM also comes with a strong social element giving you a chance to meet other colleagues across the firm’s offices and also take part in extra curricular events to raise money for charity."

"Sarah Houston at TWM proved to be a calm and reassuring presence at a time when I most needed support and stability. She tirelessly worked to understand the details of my fast-moving matter and provided me with clear advice and options at every stage. I cannot overstate how important her advice was for my personal circumstances and I wholeheartedly recommend her work."
