Trainee Recruitment

We’re looking for tomorrow’s lawyers with razor-sharp skills, a hunger to learn and the enthusiasm to get stuck in.

Emotional intelligence is at the heart of what we do. Our lawyers aren’t just technically brilliant; they connect the dots and celebrate differences.

Our unique approach to law underpins everything we do at the Firm and has helped to develop our training programme for trainees.  Through our work together, we’ll give you the responsibility and support you need to flourish.

We offer Training Contracts, Placement Schemes and Open days across our London, Guildford and Cheltenham offices.

Across all offices, we provide a practical learning environment where emphasis is given to early responsibility and supervised client contact, encouraging you to develop key legal and business skills to enable you to become a successful lawyer.

Our diverse range of practice groups means that you can gain experience across different areas of the law, engaging in high level work with both private and commercial clients.
