International law evolves constantly. So do our lawyers. So will you. With our two-year training contract, you’ll amass world-class technical skills, gain a holistic view of our firm and learn to master the law. There’s more to our lawyers than legal expertise, you’ll also develop a deep understanding of business and industry too.

It starts with stretching work. We’ll give you as much as you can handle – in our experience it’s the best way to learn. Of course we’ll balance that responsibility with help and encouragement from all corners. As well as a comprehensive legal skills training programme, you’ll have regular reviews and guidance from the trainee development team, mentors, colleagues and more.  

It’s not over when you qualify. Far from it. Your professional and personal growth will be top of the agenda throughout your career. At every stage you’ll be in the driving seat, steering your own progress and tapping into the training you need. Your goal? To develop the capability, mindset and networks to solve the complex challenges our clients’ continue to face.

Who we are looking for

You will have the ability to adapt to new surroundings, the resilience to deliver complex work to deadlines and the ability to face the unpredictable with confidence. A quick mind is also pivotal, so a strong academic record from GCSE onwards is essential. You should be pushing for a good 2:1 (or equivalent) or above in your university degree. But above all, you’ll have the ability to work effectively with others and build lasting relationships with colleagues and clients alike.
