Small Numbers. Big Opportunity.

Home About UsJoin Us!Traineeships

We pride ourselves on being different. Our trainees get the opportunity to be involved in transactions that trainees at other firms can only dream about.

So during your training, you’ll be hands-on with clients from start to finish, working directly with a partner in each key area of commercial law: commercial property, corporate, dispute resolution, employment and environmental, waste and renewables.

You’ll know exactly what’s going on, as you’ll be right at the centre of it, not a passive spectator.

Being a people business, we also remember to take time out for social activities (with clients & each other). And we remember that graduates are people, who like excellent pay packages. So we offer those too. We also meet Diploma fees for successful applicants for our Traineeships.
