Founded in 1822, we now have an international network of 25 offices in 15 countries, allowing us to provide help and legal advice to clients across Asia, Australia, Europe, the Middle East and North America. With more than 1,600 partners and lawyers working across 10 different time zones, we are able to respond to our clients wherever and whenever they need us.
Careers with us
A truly global firm with a reputation for high performance, a wealth of industry experience and a refreshingly open and diverse culture: this is who we are.
For you, this means being part of a collaborative, respectful and inclusive work environment and interacting with some of the most agile and incisive thinkers in the legal sector. Join us, and you'll work alongside dynamic and committed professionals, tackle interesting challenges and have the satisfaction of knowing that you have worked in partnership with clients around the world to achieve their ambitions.
We want to be open about what we look for in the people who join us. This is why we've put together an Expectations Framework, which is based on the values that define us as a firm and outlines the qualities we look for. Put simply, we want to meet people with energy, passion and drive. People who are able and eager to build strong relationships with colleagues and clients alike. Above all, we want to meet people with inquisitive mindsets and a desire to grow as a professional.
Graduate training programmes
All our future trainees attend The University of Law, Europe's largest and the UK's longest-established specialist provider of legal education and training. If you've not completed a law degree, you'll study the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) before moving onto the Legal Practice Course (LPC+).

In collaboration with you, we plan four seats of six months, and review that plan at regular intervals. Each seat starts with a handover and training, complete with technical expertise, so you know exactly what to expect. At least one seat will be in either our banking or securities and derivatives practice areas, and most trainees choose to do at least one other transactional seat. There's a wealth of options to consider and we will also encourage you to undertake a secondment to one of our growing offices or to a valued client.
