Kirkpatrick in DC training plan

Kirkpatrick & Lockhart Nicholson Graham is sending its entire trainee intake to Washington DC in September for a series of joint training sessions with the firm’s first-year US associates.

The trip, which will see all of the firm’s 10 trainees travel to the US, will be the second since the January 2005 merger of US firm Kirkpatrick & Lockhart and London-based Nicholson Graham & Jones.

Kirkpatrick UK director of HR Tina Two said it was likely to become “a regular feature”.
