What we look for?

Are You What We’re Looking For?

Many of our current partners trained with us so when we recruit trainees, we are always mindful that we are looking for the next generation of partners in our firm. In addition to a strong academic background (a 2.1 degree or above), you will need to demonstrate 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. Equally, we look for approachable people who are able to 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 (e.g: 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.
