Linklaters LLP

Live Your Ambition

We’re an award-winning, global law firm. We’re also the only law firm with market-leading teams across the full range of practice areas. It's a breadth reflected in our diverse client list, which includes leading financial institutions, governments and companies. Yet we don't take it for granted. Our success is only possible because of exceptional people. So there’s something else that sets us apart: the training and support we invest in them.

Every year, we offer Training Contracts to talented people from a variety of backgrounds. They have the chance to work on very high-profile, cross-border deals. Rotating “seats”, they experience several practice areas – and regions around the world – to help them decide where to specialise. Many of our Trainees undertake an international seat or client secondment. Whether you join us on a Training Contract, Vacation Scheme or other opportunity, from a law degree or other course, you can expect in-depth, ongoing training and great benefits. And we’re proud to report that this year, 91% of our qualifying Trainees chose to stay with us.

It all starts with our people. When you need advice, you’ll find your colleagues as welcoming as they are talented. And teamwork is an everyday reality. As for your development, you’ll have a senior colleague as your mentor, while a personal career plan and continuous feedback will keep you moving in the right direction. And you’ll be welcomed regardless of your background. In short, if you're intellectually curious, we’ll give you the support you need, and in return you’ll deliver the best service to your clients.

“The breadth of advice these lawyers give is unrivalled – they really do lead the way.” Client testimonial, Chambers
