Right from the start, you’ll be learning from lawyers who are recognised as leading experts in their fields.

Our intake size means that you will not get lost in the crowd. Our training becomes more like personal coaching. Sitting in a room with a partner and an associate provides the perfect opportunity to learn by osmosis. You’ll hear them dealing with clients on the phone and speaking with other lawyers — so you’ll quickly pick up the basic skills — and you’ll be able to ask questions freely.

During your two years’ training, you’ll spend six months in corporate and six months in a contentious seat. The firm offers you a choice for your other two seats in two of our other departments. In addition, there is always one trainee in the firm’s Paris office, which practises English law.

Throughout your training here, there will be workshops to underpin all the practical experience. These will look at real transactions, case law and precedents. You’ll also go to regular seminars organised by each of the departments designed to keep teams updated on all the latest developments in their practice areas.
