If you're looking for a predictable career in a traditional firm then please stop reading now. At RPC you'll get a whole lot more.
Of course clients expect their lawyers to understand the law. But what they really want is advice from smart people who get the commercial context and can spot the business implications. On this measure, it's hard to find better than RPC; the UK's leading client satisfaction report regularly recognises us for the quality of our commercial advice, and has ranked us top overall out of all law firms twice in the last four years.
Combining this commercial outlook with some of the leading lawyers in their fields and great clients, we offer a depth of knowledge and creative approach to problem solving that few firms can rival. It's no surprise, then, that we're regularly praised in the leading directories for the quality of our training programmes.
Headquartered in a state of the art site in the City of London, we also have offices in Bristol, Hong Kong and Singapore. Our culture of excellence, development and open access is driven by our open plan working environment where knowledge is easily shared and access to partners is an everyday reality. It brings out the best in our people and ensures that the service we offer our clients is second to none.
If you want to join us in challenging convention, we offer two week summer schemes and training contracts on a full–time contract for two years.
We're intent on rewriting the rules. If you have courage and a pioneering spirit, we'd love to hear from you.
As a trainee you will receive first rate training in a supportive working environment. You will collaborate closely with a partner and will be given real responsibility as soon as you are ready to handle it. At least six months will be spent in four areas of our practice. We encourage our trainees to express preferences for the areas in which they would like to train. In addition to the Professional Skills Course, we provide a complementary programme of in-house training. When you qualify we hope you will stay with us and we always do our best to place you in the area of law that suits you most.
