Trainee recruitment

The reason we take the recruitment of trainees so seriously is because we see trainees as the firm’s future partners. That is borne out by the fact that more than 60 per cent of the firm’s current partners trained with the firm.

Kate Allass, Trainee Recruitment Partner

Every year we take on between eight and ten trainees. These are people from a wide variety of backgrounds and cultures who recognise the importance of working for a law firm that regards trainees as an essential part of the team.

Not only will you receive support and advice and learn from some of the country’s top lawyers, you will gain valuable experience in all aspects of the day-to-day work of the firm, including assisting in transactions, meeting with clients and drafting documents, not to mention attending client events and firm social activities.

We offer two years of challenge, variety and fantastic training, and are proud to say that most of our trainees stay with the firm for a long and fulfilling career.

We are pleased to confirm that we retained 90% of our trainees upon their qualification in September 2014.
