Akin Gump’s London office is an exciting and inspiring environment to train as a lawyer. We offer up to five trainee places per year.
The firm’s culture is friendly, supportive and collaborative which allows for numerous opportunities for trainees to get to know everyone. There is a high level of partner involvement and trainees learn through first-hand experience working side by side with our lawyers on fast-paced, precedent-setting deals within interesting multi-discipline practice areas and by attaining early responsibility.
By focusing on a smaller intake we maintain flexibility and seek to grow the practice through our junior lawyer retention. Trainees have the choice of sitting within the financial restructuring, corporate/M&A, energy, finance, financial regulatory, investment funds, litigation and international arbitration, international trade/EU competition or tax practice areas.
Seats can be tailored to three or six month durations across the two-year training programme to provide a breadth of experience. Our trainees can also be considered for relevant international office and client secondments.
