Why join our team

What we look for

We are always mindful when we recruit, that we are looking for the next generation of solicitors and partners in our firm. Many of our current partners trained with us and have made a great impression on the Firm and industry.

Ideal qualities we look for in our new trainees:

  • A strong academic background (a 2.1 degree or above)
  • Important personal attributes. We’re looking for commitment, drive, flair, initiative, common sense, the ability to take on responsibility and the ability to work in a team.
  • Are you approachable? Can you build and maintain excellent working and collegiate relationships?

But we aren’t just interested in academic achievers.

If you are also a high achiever in any other facet of life such as sports, hobbies or other area of interest, then we’d welcome your application.

We accept trainee solicitors from all kinds of backgrounds.

So, whether you’re a law or non-law student, a graduate, mature student, international student or someone who wants to change career, we’d like to hear from you.
