What are we looking for?

  • “The candidates who have done the most to research into what we do and found a way to relate it to their own experience, often shine through.” Matthew Rowbotham, Training Recruitment Partner
  • As a firm, we are home to top tier talent within the industry, attracting innovative lawyers with ambition and drive. We concentrate our efforts on finding someone who possesses all the skills and attributes of our existing top talent. To secure a training contract with us you will therefore need to demonstrate solid commercial understanding and demonstrate a strong career focus. You’ll also need to be enthusiastic and motivated, possess strong communication skills and be able to act as a team player who works for the benefit of all.
  • When reviewing applications, we give as much attention to your experiences as we do to your academics. We do not have an automated filtering process; we review every single application thoroughly, taking account of your personal experience. 

Application Process
