The awards - now in their seventh year - celebrate the best law firms in the UK for vacation schemes and training contracts, with nominees vying for silverware in a total of 23 categories.
Thrings has made the shortlist in the Best Training Contract (overall), Best Training Contract (national firm), Best Team Relationship (training contract) and Best for Job Satisfaction (training contract) categories.
Elsewhere, partner and head of Private Client Fiona Kellow is up for the Best Training Principal award while talent and development manager Sarah Stevens is nominated for Best Graduate Recruitment Manager.
Winners of the AllAboutLaw Awards will be revealed at a ceremony on Thursday 28 November at London’s Hellenic Centre.
Fiona Kellow said: “The AllAboutLaw awards acknowledge law firms’ work in providing career opportunities for students and graduates, with the nominations having been secured as a direct result of what Thrings own trainees and NQs say about the firm.
“While being nominated is a huge achievement, it also reinforces Thrings’ reputation as a firm which offers junior lawyers the chance to gain invaluable legal experience and progress their careers in a professional, supportive and friendly environment.”
The AllAboutLaw awards nominations come hot on the heels of news that Thrings has, for the first time, been included in Legal Cheek’s prestigious ‘Firms Most List’.
The list is a comprehensive guide to leading law firms operating in the UK - including Magic Circle and major US MoneyLaw firms in London, UK-based global elite players and top mid-tier outfits – and features information about pay, hours targets, trainee retention, international reach and diversity.
Thrings secured top rankings for the training, quality of work, peer support, partner approach-ability and work/life balance it offers to trainees and junior lawyers.
Legal Cheek also praised the firm for its “good team atmosphere”, its culture - “everyone is very friendly and supportive” - and says Thrings’ partners are “approachable and encourage you to ask questions and are happy to give feedback”. Read Legal Cheek’s assessment of Thrings here.
