Training Contract

We’re looking for up to 80 people to start training with us in London in 2020, split between two intakes in February and August. Our training programme is vital to our future, because today's trainees are tomorrow's associates and partners.

It doesn't matter what your background is, which university you went to or the degree you studied. What does matter is that you have intellectual talent, excellent written and spoken English, and that you work well with other people.

The work you'll do with us will nearly always be complicated, so to do well you'll need to enjoy being challenged.

Training and development

Flexibility is key in our training contract. If you train with us, you can try up to eight areas of law. That’s twice as many as most law firms.

Our lawyers focus on at least one industry sector and work in one of seven practice groups: antitrust, competition and trade; corporate; dispute resolution; employment, pensions and benefits; finance; real estate; and tax.

The corporate, dispute resolution and finance practices are at the core of the firm, so we’ll expect you to spend at least three months in each of these groups.

You’ll also get the chance to spend time on secondment to a client or to one of our offices in the US, Asia or Europe.
