Our worldwide reputation is built on the expertise of our lawyers, who are specialists in many different areas of the law. If you’re ambitious enough to join them, we’ll help you build a law career that is everything you want it to be.
It won’t be easy, but it will be very rewarding. Our career framework will give you the structure you need to climb as high as you wish to go. We’ll also give you all the tools and guidance you need to realise your potential. The rest is up to you and what you can bring to the firm.
Salary and Benefits
Train with us and we’ll gladly recognise your value. You’ll earn a competitive salary during your training contract and we’ll also pay your GDL/LPC law school fees during actual years of study, as well as study maintenance grants of £5,000 per year of study (£6,000 in London).
On top of that during your training contract you’ll enjoy numerous benefits – and you’ll get to choose the ones that best fit your lifestyle, from 24 days’ holiday, private health cover, income protection insurance, life assurance, pension and many others.
Support and Development
You are the future of our Firm, which is why we’ll put many resources into your development. You’ll receive daily support from your supervisor, trainee representatives and our Human Resources department. In each of our practices, a partner will also hold responsibility for overseeing your training.
To ensure you stay on the right track, you’ll also get frequent feedback – informally on a day-to-day basis, in a mid-seat review at the three-month stage and through a formal appraisal at the end of each seat.
We know you want to reach your potential – you wouldn’t be here otherwise. So our career framework is designed to take you there by identifying and rewarding talent and by encouraging progress at a pace that suits you.
That means your training won’t end once you qualify. You’ll continue to hone your legal skills and knowledge at weekly seminars and workshops. These sessions aim to help you develop and support your legal knowledge within the particular area of law that you qualify in.
You’ll also develop your “soft skills” through regular business and personal development programmes. With dedicated guidance and commitment, you’ll become the lawyer clients need you to be and the lawyer you want to be.
