What does this mean for you as a Trainee?

From the outset, you will be working for high profile clients as a member of a client service team where each individual’s contribution is valued and encouraged. We thrive on the Firm’s capacity to take on the most complex challenges and on our dedication to finding practical, commercial solutions to legal problems.

We operate an open-door policy and facilitate a collaborative working environment. Our people are friendly, supportive and want to see our Trainees and Interns succeed and do well with Partners acting as mentors at every stage of an individual's development. From day one we start equipping our Trainees with the skills they need to deliver to clients in this way.
