Education – Everything that we do as a company ensures we achieve our goal – to build confident law costs draftspeople who are hungry for knowledge and are therefore able to provide our clients with the best service.

Meet Madeleine Binnie
Maddie joined us as a Law Graduate before being promoted to Operations Team Leader.
“As one of the first trainees to join Bidwell Henderson, I really did not know what to expect. However, ever since joining the team it has been an absolute pleasure. From the first day, I felt included and valued as a member of the team, and the growth of the company has also helped me grow as an individual. As a recent graduate, working for such a great company with a great ethos has given me the confidence to put forward ideas and concepts to help contribute to the business and its growth, as well as helping me develop my business and interpersonal skills.”
Meet Emily Ducat
Emily joined us as an English Literature Graduate before becoming a Law Costs Draftsman
“When I attended my first assessment for the Bidwell Henderson training programme, one of the first questions that I was asked was whether I actually understood what the job was. I was quite daunted and fumbled my way through an answer, but, after a week in the job, I could have answered that question in the blink of an eye.
I find it incredibly fulfilling that at the end of the week I have always learnt something new, whether that be about the industry, the costing regulations, or my personal method to approaching tasks.
There is nothing quite like the pride that you feel when you finally get the hang of a file that felt insurmountable.
Bidwell Henderson is full of friendly relationships, both within the company and with the clients. The company is rapidly growing and making more of those connections. If you take part in the training scheme, you’ll be part of that growth too.”
