Training Contract 2024 (London)
Fixed Term - Full Time
We are the global law firm for private capital - our focus is what distinguishes us from all other law firms. Wherever successful people, investors and businesses are deploying private capital, we have the capabilities and skills to assist them. We advise on the uses of wealth, its protection and succession to the next generation and on preventing or solving disputes relating to assets.
We operate across borders - we knit together the laws of different jurisdictions, overcoming cultural differences and communicating in
many languages. Our teams work together across the world to achieve our clients’ needs, whilst also keeping in mind the importance
of local knowledge.
We are relationship-focused, for the long-term - transformative relationship with each of our clients, and to act as a trusted advisor whether they need our help as an individual, a family, senior professional, or a business. We understand our clients’ interests and the issues they face and we have deep knowledge of their industries and international markets. This means that our advice to clients is based on decades of collective experience.
What are we looking for?
To join us, you’ll have a strong academic record but beyond that you will have the diversity of interests and confidence to work with our client base. We are the largest law firm in the world focused on the needs of individuals and have spent the last decade growing this international platform – the ability to work globally with all sorts of different people is vital. The international nature of our practice means that
language skills (whilst not essential) can be useful, particularly Russian, Italian, Ukrainian French, Spanish, Arabic and Mandarin.
Beyond the international, you’ll probably be interested in developing your leadership abilities but definitely be determined to learn commercial skills alongside the law. To support our clients, we develop new solutions locally and globally to help their develop and maintain their success, and doing this means more than knowing the law.
We welcome applications from all degree disciplines and from applicants at all stages of their career (undergraduates, postgraduates, mature students and those considering a career change). We are an equal opportunities employer and actively aim to attract a vibrant, diverse pool of talent with individual skills and experience to reflect our dynamic client base. You’ll have, or be on track to have a 2:1 degree or higher and a minimum of AAB at A-Level (or the equivalent if educated outside the UK).
Please note that undergraduate applicants must be in their penultimate or final year of a law degree or their final year of a non-law degree.
