Whether you are a Qualified Lawyer, a member of the Business Services team, or a Trainee Solicitor, you'll get the chance to realise your full potential in our supportive and open environment.Â
Who we are
Founded in 1870, Ince & Co is an international commercial law firm. The majority of our work is for organisations in five global sectors: aviation, energy, insurance, international trade and shipping. Our clients own, build, manage, finance, lease or insure the high value, often mobile assets that play a fundamental part in today's competitive global markets.
With 13 offices worldwide, including sites in London, Hong Kong, Hamburg and Shanghai, we have over 600 people, including over 90 partners and more than 160 other lawyers worldwide.
Careers with us
Whether or not you are looking to complete a placement scheme, apply for a training contract directly, or attend an open evening there are a whole host of opportunities available at Ince.
We pride ourselves on our training programme not least because of its results - over 70% of our partners trained here.
From the moment you step through the door you'll be given real responsibility for real cases. Although your work will be supervised by partners, you'll also enjoy a high level of autonomy. You'll need to be proactive too. At Ince we don't have rigid departmental structures so you're encouraged to approach partners and get involved in all aspects of our practice areas throughout your training contract. The areas themselves are broad, for example shipping law can involve anything from the financing of a vessel to advising on a collision at sea.
Graduate can explore more about other trainees, the sectors we work in and learn more about our partners HERE.
Getting the balance right
We thrive on the challenges our work brings here at Ince, but it's important to us that our people have time to make the most of life outside of work too. As well as a good work/life balance, you'll enjoy a great social life.
It's not just the work you do with us that you'll find rewarding. You could also be involved in any one - or more - of a number of events supporting local, national and international charities. Examples of activities our people have participated in to raise money for charities include cycling from Houston to Austin, running the London Marathon, baking for charity cake sales, dressing down on Jeans for Genes day, and rising to the Three Peaks Challenge.
