Credit for innovative training programme
PM Property Lawyers was Highly Commended at the 2018 Modern Law Conveyancing awards. The firm was recognised in the Outstanding Commitment to Training category.
The awards recognise innovation and achievement in the conveyancing sector, with the expert judging panel looking for firms that have achieved the highest standards.
Harvey Harding, Managing Director of PM Property Lawyers, has made training and development a priority. “It’s absolutely crucial for the team to keep learning and growing,” he commented. “As well as developing successful careers and creating the property lawyers of the future, it means that the quality of customer service we can provide is continually improving. This is more important than ever as client expectations are constantly on the rise.”
Rapid growth for PMPL
The Sheffield-based firm has grown rapidly over the last five years. It now has a team of 60 handling residential conveyancing transactions from all over England and Wales. The ‘PM Passport’ scheme offers all team members the opportunity to train as property lawyers with a thorough grounding in property law.
Head of Training, Steven Sutherland, was delighted to achieve this recognition. “We offer training to everyone in the team, whether they start with us straight from school or with a university law degree. In fact, one of our property lawyers who started as an apprentice has just been shortlisted in the Young Conveyancer of the Year category in another prestigious industry award. So we know our programme is really effective at producing excellent property lawyers. And the training continues for everyone as there is always more to learn, even for our most experienced team members.”
PM Property Lawyers also made the shortlist in the Best Direct Conveyancing Firm category in the Law Firm Services Awards. The winner will be announced on 19 September.
