We recruit 25 trainees every year, split between March and September intakes and based at our offices in London, Birmingham, Exeter and Manchester. Training is divided into four six-month seats and you can expect to experience a broad range of departments and practice areas over the course of the two-year period.
All trainees are teamed with a supervisor. It's their role to guide you through each of your six-month seats and ensure that you are given plenty of challenges and all the support you need.
From the outset, you will be given real responsibility and the opportunity to learn from hands-on experience in a supportive working environment.
Our core areas of expertise are real estate, corporate, dispute resolution & litigation and banking & finance. We also have strong expertise in commercial property, employment, housing and regeneration, private wealth, projects and construction and public sector commercial.
We offer trainees the opportunity to spend six months in one of our offices in the Middle East; Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Bahrain and Oman. You'll be given a high level of responsibility and have the opportunity to get involved in some fascinating international work.
Trainees are critical to the success and growth of our firm. Our clients need you to be pragmatic, commercial and know their business. Not only must you have strong legal skills, you'll need a wide range of business skills to achieve excellence.
We have designed a structured training programme that will help equip you with the skills you'll need to perform your role to the highest standards.
The programme draws from a range of expertise from across the business as well as external experts.
