Our E&I team advised on some of the most important infrastructure projects here in the UK, across Europe and in Africa. We also have teams focused on finance; capital markets; M&A; competition; cyber, privacy and data innovation; employment and dispute resolution.
Whether you’re looking to start your law career or join us from another firm, our London office offers a dynamic, collaborative environment. We offer a comprehensive training program, including academies focused on developing business skills as you advance. And we will ensure you connect with mentors and have opportunities to make a social impact.
If you are interested in joining us as an experienced lawyer in London, please see our current listings or contact Halina Kasprowiak, Director of Administration, at [email protected].
Our training program, which commences in August, is designed to provide you with everything you will need to succeed:
We welcome candidates with different experiences and backgrounds. In fact, two-thirds of our trainees have non-law degrees. We look for a commitment to excellence. Applicants for our graduate trainee program should have at least three A-Level passes at grades A and B (or equivalent) and a 2:1 degree (in any discipline). Law undergraduates can apply from their penultimate year onward. Non-law undergraduates can apply from their final year onward.
As part of our graduate recruitment process, we are using the Rare Contextual Recruitment System. This is a specially developed system which allows us to measure candidates' achievements in the context of their socioeconomic background. Using this system means we can better understand candidates' achievements, and identify those that have performed exceptionally well from a range of diverse backgrounds.
To apply for our 2022 August Training Program, please submit an application online. Applications open on 1 October 2019 and close on 29 May 2020.
If you are thinking about training with us, we encourage you to attend one of our Open Days. We are holding four Open Days in spring 2020: 16, 18, 23 and 25 March. You will spend the day in our London office, meet our lawyers and current trainees, complete a drafting exercise, and participate in a business game designed to give an insight into the work of a solicitor. The day will also include a first round interview for a 2022 Training Contract. Applications open on 1 October 2019 and close on 31 January 2020.
