Our Company

Kidd Rapinet Solicitors

Kidd Rapinet is a limited liability partnership and, like most forward looking companies, has evolved considerably since it was established in 1958. Today, the result is a modern law firm with a strong combination of skills and resources at every branch.

We have an unusually high partner to assistant ratio to ensure every client receives the same professional partner-led service, whatever their requirement. A quick and efficient response, personal contact and timely ongoing communication is the cornerstone to our reputation and ongoing success.

Trainee Info

Kidd Rapinet do not recruit trainee solicitors directly but do offer training contracts to suitable paralegals whom we employ.  There is no guarantee that a paralegal will be offered a training contract.

Vacancies for paralegals at Kidd Rapinet arise from time to time in particular offices. Applicants for paralegal positions at London office should apply via email to Philip Wild with their CV and a covering letter.  Applicants to other offices should be to the Managing Partner of that office.

Paralegals are supervised and appraised in the same way as trainees so that up to 6 months of time spent as a paralegal can be treated as “time to count” towards a training contract. We would normally expect a candidate for a training contract to have successfully completed the Legal Practice Course before they start with us as a paralegal. However, a training contract will only be offered at our discretion if we are satisfied with a paralegal’s performance.

“I applied to Kidd Rapinet mainly because it was a firm with a diverse range of practice areas. Throughout the interview process I could sense the firm had a high level of professionalism and enthusiasm, and would allow me to get hands on training from the outset. One of the most refreshing aspects of working for Kidd Rapinet is the approachability of the Partners. Whilst you are expected to assume responsibility early and have regular contact with clients, the door is always open to ask questions. Overall, I’ve found Kidd Rapinet to be a very welcoming and inclusive firm, with a genuine interest in ensuring I receive a well rounded training programme. I’m thoroughly enjoying my time here and look forward to starting my final seat with the private client team.”
