Types of Roles

  • Lawyer

    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.

  • Trainee

    We offer trainee lawyers an exceptional opportunity to gain qualifying work 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; (including Media and Communications Disputes); and Employment. Trainees may also be able to gain experience in other departments such as: Family; the Death Penalty Project and Crime. It should be noted, however, that the practice areas available for trainees may change from time to time and that there is no guarantee that any particular practice areas will be made available in respect of any particular trainee.

    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 or SQE 1 & 2 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 is 1 May to 31 October each year for intakes commencing in two years’ time.  Included in the offer to successful candidates will be financial support of up to £5,000 for the SQE 2 course and examination fee, which will be reimbursed on completion of the training contract.

    Please see the Vacancy section below for the application process.

  • Support

    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.

  • Vacation Scheme

    Our summer vacation scheme takes place each year in July. For 2024, the scheme will take place from 1-12 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 or 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 click here for details on eligibility and how to apply.
