Non-rotational Training Contract

Our distinctive training contract structure is integral to our culture and success and the benefits are felt at every level. In the absence of a rigid seat-system, trainees have the flexibility to mould their career from the earliest opportunity and enjoy a high level of responsibility. Our trainees are quickly integrated into various teams across the Firm and gain unparalleled exposure to different areas of law. Trainees are never held back by set ‘trainee’ tasks or have to drop an interesting case or deal to move on to another department. This aids strong client bonds and opportunities to assist on all aspects of a transaction.

Our work placement schemes over the Winter, Spring and Summer vacations are the route to our way of training. Operating like mini-training contracts, you gain a real insight into trainee life at our global law firm.
