We are a sector-focused, entrepreneurial law firm. But there’s more to us than that. We have a passion for the sectors we work in –whether we are solving complex issues across construction, aviation and shipping, or providing advice across insurance, commodities and energy. We’re people who like to get things done. It’s this pragmatism, combined with our creative approach, that makes us our clients’ go-to commercial advisers. And we are, unapologetically, absolute experts in what we advise our clients on. So yes, we’re different. Our clients say “less traditional” – “progressive”, even. We say we’re specialist lawyers here to add value to our clients.
Every year we recruit only a small number of trainees- 15 per year split across a September and March intake. This enables us to give every trainee our full attention, and means that your individual contribution makes a difference. A training contract at HFW is truly global. It consists of four six month seats – typically three contentious seats and one transactional seat, with at least one seat spent outside of London in an international office. Recent secondment locations include Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore, Dubai, Melbourne, Geneva, Paris and Piraeus.
Our Trainees are involved in a combination of workshops, departmental know-how sessions, mentoring by experienced lawyers and on-the-job training. Overall, we aim to provide you with a dynamic, supportive and varied environment in which you are challenged to become the best lawyer you can be.
We are currently recruiting for training contracts and for our 2019 vacation schemes.
