The apprenticeship includes CILEx Level 3 units in law, legal practice and professional skills. The Addleshaw Goddard apprentices achieved a 100% pass rate in the CILEx exam session in June 2014.
The Transaction Services Team (TST) focuses on tasks that are found in major legal assignments but which do not necessarily need to
be done by qualified lawyers, such as document review, due diligence and e-disclosure, as well as process elements of transactional, advisory and litigation work.
Mike Potter, head of the TST says: “The TST is our award winning team of paralegals, apprentices and managers which delivers more for less. It does this by providing a wide range of legal services across our business, in either a stand-alone or an integrated way alongside Addleshaw Goddard’s lawyers. The common theme for the tasks the team carries out, is they are found in our legal assignments but don’t necessarily need to be carried out by qualified lawyers.
“The work undertaken by TST team is varied, challenging and interesting.
“We work on a huge range of matters supporting each of the divisions/practice areas of the firm: real estate; litigation; finance and projects;
corporate; and commercial. The range and scale of our work is compelling and encompasses highly complex pieces to the everyday. This means each day is different and members of our team are continually developing new skills and legal knowledge.”
