Glaisyers is UK's first to deliver RIBA accredited training

Manchester-based Glaisyers Solicitors has been named as the first law firm to provide training to RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects).

The announcement comes following an intensive nine-month period of preparation by Glaisyers following RIBA's initial invitation to undergo the training assessment in early 2006.

Glaisyers are now accredited by RIBA to train architects in the following three key areas:

- Construction Disputes

- Employment Law

- Your Practice - liabilities, risks and opportunities

Nick Johnson, partner at Glaisyers commented: "We are very pleased RIBA will be recommending Glaisyers to provide its professional training to its members. A lot of hard work and effort went into this, which has definitely paid off. Glaisyers is now uniquely positioned in the legal marketplace as the only UK law firm with the authority to provide RIBA training to architects. This commitment from RIBA distinguishes us from our peers and automatically establishes Glaisyers as a key law firm in the region."

Senior members of RIBA originally attended a 'construction dispute' seminar hosted by partner and commercial litigation specialist, Mike Key. Impressed at the high calibre and relevance of the training material, the attendees immediately recommended Glaisyers to the RIBA assessment panel.

Minesh Patel, CPD marketing manager from RIBA commented: "We are delighted that Glaisyers have come aboard as the UK's first law firm to be accredited to train our members. They will have an extremely valuable input and we look forward to working with them in the future."
