"I'm generally satisfied. When you start a seat you'll be eased in with pretty simple work. The more you prove you can do, the more you will be given. If you want a lot of responsibility then you can end up running some matters."
First year trainee, LONDON
"The firm's office is small so trainees get given a lot of responsibility on deals. You can be helping to draft documents and sorting out closing documentation for quite big deals, which is great experience."
First year trainee, London
"Work levels can really vary as the teams tend to be small. You will sometimes face tasks of a much higher level than a typical trainee role, while other times will see you performing tasks similar to secretarial or paralegal work."
Second year trainee, London
"Tasks vary tremendously. A lot of responsibility and client contact is given to you early on in your training contract."
First year trainee, London
"I was assigned an extremely high quality of work in my first seat and all of it was essential to the transactions that the wider team was working on. There was a great deal of variety as well."
First year trainee, London
"It depends on which seat you're in but I am generally satisfied with the work I do. Trainees often take ownership of managing documentation on deals."
