We are Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner. If you're looking for the most invigorating and inspiring start to your career in law, there's no other firm quite like us.  

BCLP is where 1,400 talented lawyers in 31 offices around the globe come together to provide clear, connected legal advice to high profile clients in every time zone. Unlike many other global law firms, we are truly one firm with one profit pool, rather than a Swiss Verein.

It's where cutting-edge technology meets true thought leadership and where everyone from the newest trainee to the most senior partner contributes to a culture that's friendly, supportive and hugely rewarding. 

If you share our progressive attitude and fresh-thinking approach, BCLP is where your ambition meets the future of law. 

There's any number of reasons to choose BCLP. And you'll discover many more over the following pages. But wherever you join us, you'll also find that:

We give you exposure to high-profile clients

We work with household names like Deliveroo, Nike, Goldman Sachs, Heathrow, EDF, BT, Deutsche Bank, Tesco and eBay. And you will too. In some cases, you might even have the chance to spend time with them on a client secondment. 

We're big on technology and innovation

We were the first major law firm to use AI, and we’ve won the Legal Week AI Innovation Award two years running. We were also the first firm to use Predictive Coding (a form of machine learning) in a case that went to trial in the High Court. Our commitment to technology also allows our lawyers to focus on exciting work rather than being bogged down in document reviews.

We team our trainees up with partners

Every new trainee is allocated a partner mentor to help them find their feet and offer support and guidance throughout their training contract.   

We have an outstanding reputation 

Our Real Estate Finance team, for instance, is ranked Tier 1 by both Legal 500 and Chambers. And the firm as a whole has earned a top 20 spot in The Lawyer UK 200 rankings.

We provide an open platform for growth 

It's something everyone at BCLP benefits from. But when you're just starting out, we work particularly hard to strike the perfect balance between real responsibility and the support you need to develop and grow. 

We offer a tremendous variety of work 

The breadth of clients we work with and the range of projects we undertake present countless challenges, countless opportunities and countless industries to immerse yourself in.
