London Graduates

Our aim is to be the global law firm of choice for the world's leading businesses of today and tomorrow.

As a single, fully integrated, global partnership, we pride ourselves on our approachable, collegial and team-based way of working.

With a global reach and thousands of lawyers working from dozens of offices around the world, we offer expert advice to clients on all aspects of commercial law.

We always strive to exceed the expectations of our clients, which include corporates from all the commercial and industrial sectors, governments, regulators, trade bodies and not-for-profit organisations across five continents.

Many of our deals are newsworthy. Often, they demand the kind of knowledge that only international, cross-practice teams can provide.

Our reputation in the field is formidable. That's why organisations turn to us not just for legal expertise but also for advice on their most critical business issues.

It’s not enough to have an expert understanding of law. Our clients need people with real commercial acumen. People who can bring their insight and imagination to complex problems. People who can act as trusted business advisers and deliver the results that matter. As a trainee, you'll see for yourself exactly how, by having the opportunity to experience a variety of seats.

Whatever your path, you'll gain an insight into our global deals, our high-profile clients and our collaborative culture. As an integral member of the team, you'll also rapidly develop your legal and business skills.
