Italian Stagiaire Programme
Fixed Term - Full Time
Dispute Resolution - Litigation
Withersworldwide has been acting for successful individuals, families and institutions for 125 years. We advise clients on the full range of their business, personal and philanthropic legal needs, both at home and abroad. With offices in the key financial centres of Europe, Asia-Pacific, the United States and the Caribbean, we provide coverage and services that other law firms focussed on the needs of the individual cannot. We have represented 66% of the Top 100 in The Sunday Times Rich List, 25% of the Forbes 400 List, 35% of the Hong Kong Forbes Rich List and 35% of Forbes Asia's Richest Families list.
About the programme
The programme is for a period of 3 or 6 months during which the Stagiaire works closely with the firm’s Litigation department. There are also opportunities to work with lawyers in other areas of the firm such as Corporate, Real Estate, Family and Private Client and Tax.
Daily tasks vary from assisting in the translation of complex legal documentation to assisting actively in specific cases or liaising with Italian clients or colleagues. Stagiaires are often asked to advise colleagues on certain aspects of Italian law by way of comparison to the English law.
The stagiaire programme is open to Italian law graduates and newly qualified Avvocati.
Please note, there is no deadline date for applications but generally all applications received up until the end of July of the preceding year are considered for places the following year. We therefore often recruit up to a year in advance.
For further information, please contact the recruitment team.
Information for Recruitment Agencies
Withersworldwide endeavours to recruit and fill vacancies directly. However, when we do need to engage with agencies, Withersworldwide operates a preferred supplier list and will not be accepting unsolicited applications from non-PSL agencies for this role.
