Who we are
With 22 offices, more than 1,700 attorneys and 50-plus practice areas, we advise businesses, financial institutions and governmental entities around the world on their most complex, high-profile matters, providing the guidance they need to compete in today’s business environment.
Recognising the value of providing full-service advice to clients, from day one we have sought to develop a range of complementary practices, like litigation, tax and antitrust. We expanded the practices we offered to clients, including restructuring, finance, real estate and securities litigation, as well as the opening of offices in Europe and Asia.
The continued growth of our practice and geographic reach is what helps us to deliver the best possible service. Our strategically positioned locations around the globe allow us proximity to our clients and their operations and ensure a seamless and unified approach at all times. You can be part of the continued growth.

Your first year will be divided into two six-month seats, in which trainees gain experience in corporate transactions and litigation/international arbitration. The second year provides the opportunity to gain exposure to other offices or practice areas in advance of qualifying as a solicitor, including undertaking an international seat in our Brussels, Hong Kong or New York office.
We pride ourselves on our broad and comprehensive training programme. In addition to completing your Professional Skills Course, you will have a regular training schedule. Drawing upon the experience and teaching abilities of our partners, associates and qualified external consultants, we also offer weekly training seminars, workshops and updates for associates at all levels and across our practice areas.
