Training Contract

We believe what makes us stand out as an employer, is the attention we give to training and support. We offer the fully-rounded programme you need to rapidly develop your commercial law knowledge and skills, and become a successful lawyer. And this dedication is paying dividends, as our trainees choose to stay with us year after year.

The Training Contract experience

Over four six-month seats (placements), you'll work on a range of live projects, and have real influence. There's no substitute for the depth and quality of insight that comes from spending six months in a department. You may also have the chance to take up an international or client secondment. And at the end of your Contract, you'll be able to make a well-informed decision about where to start your career.

Support and feedback

In each department, you'll sit with a Principal who is on hand to train and supervise. A Group Trainee Solicitor Partner will also give you additional support. With ongoing feedback, you'll have ample opportunity to discuss progress with the Trainee Development Team and draw up a training plan. As you define your interests, we’ll give you the flexibility to change your preference as you go. And you’ll have access to specific seminars and training modules relevant to your seat and practice area.
