Woven into every aspect of life at the firm is an enduring commitment to the development of trainees. Training begins with tailored electives on the LPC at BPP with regular seminars and social events at the firm, along with the support and advice from a trainee mentor.
During the two-year training contract you'll be working on real cases, doing real work for real clients from day one. As a trainee you will complete four six-month seats in different practice areas; typically it is one seat in corporate and M&A, two seats in either private client, litigation, commercial real estate or tax, and then a seat in one of the firm's specialised practice areas within corporate. The precise allocation of seats is flexible so that it can offer you as broad a legal training as possible. Support and guidance are, of course, vital and you will find your supervisor a valuable source of information and inspiration.
