Who we are looking for
We’re always on the hunt for world-class legal talent.
We recruit graduates, experienced lawyers, knowledge management lawyers and non-UK-qualified lawyers. We welcome all backgrounds and nationalities but the nature of our work means you must speak and write English fluently.
We expect outstanding academic qualifications but we’re also looking for people with an appetite for challenging work and the ability to think creatively.
We want people who can fit in easily with colleagues and clients, and perform under pressure. Market or industry experience is also an advantage.
We have a high performance and work hard as a team to deliver exceptional client service. We are open to differences in working practices, and will support you in effectively managing your work and personal commitments.
