Being a good lawyer requires much more than excellent academic ability. It involves teamwork, commercial awareness, intuition, versatility, the ability to get on with a variety of people - and great communication skills. That’s what we look for when we are choosing our trainees.

More than that, we are looking for people with engaging personalities and who understand that practising law goes well beyond the ability to analyse. It is about the ability to understand people as well as issues, and presenting information that is often complex in a clear and accessible way.

Every year, we welcome between eight and ten trainees to the firm. They are people from a wide variety of backgrounds and cultures who recognise the importance of working for a law firm that regards trainees is an essential part of the team. Not only will you receive support and advice from some of the country’s top lawyers, you will gain valuable experience in all aspects of 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.
