"In my current department I have a lot of responsibility for an important piece of litigation. My time is split between day-to-day case management (writing letters, liaising with counsel, research, drafting emails) and long term tasks (helping to prepare evidence, looking at disclosure etc)."
First year trainee, London
"Day-to-day responsibilities can be quite admin-focused but teams are small so interesting research work is also part of the job. Client interaction depends on the department and the matter."
First year trainee, London
"The work I've done has ranged from assisting with case management to drafting, reviewing and negotiation. There's a relatively high level of client contact but it really depends on the seat."
First year trainee, London
"All of the seats are really mixed but I would say, from having discussed with trainees at other firms, we get a lot more involved here at Bristows and receive a lot of responsibility. The team trusts you."
Second year trainee, London
"Client interaction relies heavily on which team/department you are in. In general you are expected to interact with clients, either in person or by phone or email, from day one. Trainee responsibilities usually involve research tasks, drafting documents or correspondence, clerking, attending meetings and drafting attendance notes etc."
First year trainee, London
"So far in this department (IP litigation) I have not had much client interaction."
First year trainee, London
