Training contract locations




A training contract in our City office in London will place you at the centre of one of the world’s leading legal practices. Our London training contract consists of six-month seats in four of our nine practice areas.


Along with a seat in our Banking and Finance practice and a contentious seat (or an external litigation course), you may also have the opportunity to work in one of our global offices or to work directly with one of our clients within their team and office.


Milton Keynes and Watford


Our rotational Milton Keynes and Watford training contract will see you move between the two offices, with the opportunity to experience our City-level out-of-town legal service and the chance to work with our numerous household-name clients.


Our legal departments include Corporate, Dispute Resolution, Financial Litigation, Real Estate, Property Litigation, Construction and Employment, and you’ll spend six-month seats in four of them.


The Milton Keynes and Watford training contract offers the opportunity to experience four completely varied seats, with a distinct focus on contentious experience.


Middle East


We’re the largest foreign legal practice in the region. We’d like to hear from nationals of GCC countries interested in training in both our London and our Middle East offices. After qualifying, you’ll have the opportunity to apply for a position in one of our Middle East offices.
