The alternative business structure Brilliant Law is to offer training contracts, after receiving its licence from the Solicitors Regulation Authority.
The Leeds firm, which was founded in 2012, will be able to take up to four trainees. Its first, Tamanna Keir, has started her training on a part-time basis while studying the Legal Practice Course, which is being sponsored by the firm.
Matthew Briggs, chief executive of Brilliant Law, said: “We want to support the cream of the industry’s emerging talent, and give them mentoring from the best in the business.
“We are a growing organisation and want the best legal talent out there to grow with us. We are interested in individuals with a clear career form, awareness of business dynamics and team skills.”
