Why your firm?

2018

"I liked the culture and felt that the firm's approach to trainees would result in me becoming the best lawyer I could be. Having a lot of hard work with a significant amount of responsibility from an early stage means that I will learn a lot of skills very quickly."
Second year trainee, London
"I applied because of the prestige and quality of the clients as well as the mid-sized intake that isn't too large or small."
First year trainee, London
"The market-leading international work, the size of the trainee cohort and the strong retention rates."
Second year trainee, London
"The high level of responsibility given to juniors, the international nature of the transactions and the range of high-calibre clients represented."
Second year trainee, London
"The people, the firm's place at the top of the legal industry and the long list of incredible clients."
First year trainee, London
"I attended an insight day that gave me lots of information about the firm. I was also attracted by the high-profile nature of the work that the firm is engaged in. Ultimately, I decided to train at Latham because it struck the perfect balance between the responsibility and fast-paced elements of US law firms and the larger intake and formalised training contracts of Magic Circle firms."
