Training contract 2019
Taylor Wessing is a full-service international law firm, standing at the forefront of the industries of tomorrow. Acting as legal advisors to well-known clients in progressive and cutting-edge sectors, we’re a firm for the ground breakers, the smart thinkers and the trail blazers. Our spark, focus and lateral thinking make us exceptional legal advisors, helping our clients to succeed by thinking innovatively about their business issues.
Our focus on the industries of tomorrow - technology, media and communications, life sciences, private wealth and energy - means that alongside law students, we also recruit a wide range of students who have studied non-law degrees. Our clients include private and public companies, financial institutions, professional service firms, public sector bodies of both large and medium size and wealthy individuals. Our international presence is also something that we strive to protect as we continue to strengthen our brand globally. Combining a pan-European network with a strong presence in the Middle East, India, China and North America, we are the leading firm for inward investment from North America and experts in IP protection and enforcement rights across the globe. That’s why we advise half of the world’s top 100 brands.
We look for team players with a minimum of ABB grades at A level and a 2.1 degree in any discipline. You’ll need to be confident and enthusiastic with the communication skills to build vibrant relationships with our clients. You’ll have the energy, ambition and creativity to take early responsibility and have a real impact on our business and our clients’ business. You’ll also be committed to a career in law, with a genuine passion to learn and explore new boundaries.
Our award winning training (we won LawCareers.Net Best Trainer - Large City Firm 2014) combines our in-house Professional Skills Course with six-month seats in four different practice groups, including one contentious seat and one in our corporate or finance areas. Our programme is recognised for the extent of partner contact available to trainees, and you'll work closely with associates on high-quality work from the outset. Frequent client contact and secondment opportunities to their offices are also offered and regular support and feedback every step of the way will ensure that your career is aligned to the growth and needs of the firm and our clients.
