We are a dynamic firm and will always consider applications from talented, dynamic and enterprising individuals.
We have no fixed model for recruitment but we look for excellence and commitment and entrepreneurship. As well as recruiting solicitors and partners, we have successfully recruited consultants, barristers, legal executives and other individuals with suitable legal experience who want to be part of our team.
We offer trainee lawyers an exceptional opportunity to gain experience in an open and diverse environment with partners and lawyers who are leaders in their fields.
Trainees will have the opportunity to gain experience in some of the firm’s major practice areas:
Media; Corporate, Commercial and Finance (including Film and TV, IP, Broadcasting and Tech); Dispute Resolution; Media and Communications Disputes; Employment; and Family.
Trainees may also be able to gain experience in other departments.
Applications from both law and non-law graduates are welcome. However, the successful candidate will need to be able to demonstrate they have passed the LPC to an appropriate standard and are entitled to work in the United Kingdom without any additional approvals by commencement of the training contract. You should be able to demonstrate a consistently high level of academic and personal achievement, independent thinking and a desire for excellence.
We usually have one intake of trainees each year commencing in October. Our application window for 2023 is 11 August to 31 October 2021.
Please see the Vacancy section below for the application process.
We employ a dedicated and experienced team of support staff, who bring a level of professionalism to all of their duties.
Our staff maintain an exceptional work ethic and are pro-active in supporting our partners and lawyers. They also offer a personal and professional experience to our clients.
Please see below for any current vacancies that we have for support staff.
Please note: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, unfortunately we will not be operating our vacation scheme in 2021. Opportunities for the 2022 scheme will be published here towards the end of 2021.
Our summer vacation scheme takes place each year in June and July. It is an excellent way to get an insight into life as a trainee at the firm.
The scheme will see each student experience a variety of legal work across two weeks. Each student will sit in at least one of our core practice groups (Dispute Resolution; Media; and Corporate, Commercial & Finance) and personal preferences will be catered for where possible.
Please note that placements with the Death Penalty Project are not part of the vacation scheme.
Applications open on 1 December and close on 15 March each year. During that timeframe, please see below for details on eligibility and how to apply.
