"I would like to say a big thank you to Bernard and the other course leaders. I found the PathtoPartner programme excellent, it was extremely informative, thought provoking and I learned a lot from it."
Sarah, a delegate on the course run recently in Leeds.
PathtoPartner is the complete non-technical training package for the next partners in your firm. Every module is delivered by an experienced team who really understand how best to train and develop solicitors, accountants and patent and trade mark attorneys.
While those you have highlighted for partnership have undoubtedly made the grade technically and have demonstrated the ability to look after your clients, do they have all of the business and management skills that will be essential if they are to continue to grow their practice and your firm?
Do they know how to consistently bring in new work? Can they keep growing and farming their network so the opportunities keep coming long into the future? Are they ready to manage their team (and themselves) in an efficient and productive way? Do they have the business acumen and financial knowhow to spot and deal with potential problems and keep driving their practice forward?
These are exactly the questions PathtoPartner has been set up to answer.
We have a put together a panel of trusted experts all of whom have the specialist professional services experience required to add the finishing touches to your future partners. We will give them the skills to ensure they are fully prepared to make the highest possible impact on the future of your firm.

However PathtoPartner is not only about your future partners. We can also help you choose the right people to join your partnership.
