Training Contract

Treated as a lawyer from day one, you'll enjoy rewarding early responsibility, international opportunities and big-ticket work as you learn from legal experts across the globe. Our training contracts consist of four six-month seats and we'll get you started with a full and comprehensive induction, designed to help you settle into life here. Then it's down to business, with lots of early responsibility and exposure. Because the more you get involved in, the more you'll gain.

Choosing from our broad-ranging practice areas, your programme will typically include a contentious seat, a non-contentious seat, real estate and an optional seat (which could be an international secondment or working for a client). You'll get deeply involved in interesting casework for an exceptional scope of clients, enjoying top-tier training in a high performing, hugely encouraging culture. It'll be a continuous learning journey with one-to-one guidance from a partner mentor, a dedicated supervisor, the graduate recruitment team and, of course, the strong support network of legal experts all around you.

We take on around 25 trainees across Birmingham and London. Not huge numbers, no - and that's deliberate. It means that there are enough of you to support each other, share experiences and enjoy social activities, but not too many that you're in constant competition for top-quality work.
