If offered a training contract we will sponsor your Legal Practice Course (LPC) before you launch your journey with us as a trainee where you’ll spend two years experiencing at least three areas of the law. This will involve having four six-month stints, called seats, in our various practice areas. These seats are identified for you based on our business needs, your preferences and strengths, so that you gain solid, all-round experience of contentious and non-contentious work.
You will also benefit from the Professional Skills Course, which we supplement with a structured programme from our training Academy to strengthen your skillset. This is the highly successful way we develop your abilities and help you find your niche.
Our typical trainee seats are:
- Construction and engineering
- Litigation and dispute resolution
- Real estate
- Restructuring and insolvency
We look for bright trainees who want to fulfill their ambition with us. You’ll need a strong academic background: a 2:1 or above in any degree subject.
We expect you to share our enthusiasm for our business and our clients.
But we want more than that.
Show us what sets you apart. You will be a great candidate to us if you can show you have an entrepreneurial spirit and enjoy finding new ways to get things done. Demonstrating that you’re comfortable in your own skin.
And when you show us, show us differently. Showcase practical know-how, your personality, efforts and attainments. Be yourself and you won’t go far wrong.
We offer training contracts in three locations.
- West Midlands with seats in our Birmingham, Solihull and Stratford-upon-Avon offices
- East Midlands with seats at our Leicester and Nottingham offices
We are looking for trainees to join us in the West Midlands, East Midlands and London in 2022.
The deadline to apply is 14 June 2020. Please apply here.
