Hill Dickinson to educate its lawyers on business matters

Hill Dickinson has launched a new training programme aimed at honing skills and improving its lawyers’ knowledge of the business.

The firm has launched in-house training sessions for all lawyers in the Chester, Liverpool, London and Manchester offices to provide a better understanding of the firm and strengthen client relationships.

Hill Dickinson managing partner Peter Jackson said: “The idea is to create a structure for education within the firm. At the moment we’ll be keeping training in-house and it will be done by our senior management.”

Earlier this month finance director Colin Wardale visited practice groups across the firm to discuss the financial structure and challenges the firm faces on a business level.
