From Trainee Solicitor to Asset Manager – Mark King Speaks to Legal Week

28 July 2021

There are now more opportunities than ever to get into litigation funding early in your career, even when training.

The traditional route of training within a law firm is no longer the only option open to aspiring trainee solicitors. There are a multitude of in-house training programmes offered by businesses that can provide trainees with real commercial experience, alongside their technical qualifications.

One of the newer routes to traineeship, is to train at a litigation funder like Harbour. We launched a trainee scheme in 2019 and our first trainee Felix Curtis, is due to qualify in late 2021.

In an article for Legal Week, Mark King explains how training at a funder like Harbour can help a trainee focus on and develop their commercial skills, with a view to progressing into an asset manager role.

It can also be an invaluable tool for law firms who can benefit from secondments to gain knowledge of the funding industry.
