You’re put in an environment where you have to think for yourself and it’s a really good learning process.
Jonathan Haley, Corporate Partner
We encourage all newly qualified solicitors to go on at least one secondment, where they join one of our clients on an in-house basis for six months. In that time, they will work closely with the client, gaining an insight into the organisation and its people.
As well as providing our clients with some of our finest talent to work exclusively on their business, this is a vital learning opportunity for our solicitors, allowing them to develop their legal expertise and people skills, putting in place a relationship that often lasts for many years.
Recent secondments have included:
- British Library
- British Olympic Association
- Imperial College
- Lawn Tennis Association
- Lloyds Banking Group
- London Business School
- Natural History Museum
- Rugby Football Union
- Science Museum
- University of Oxford
