As a leading international law firm, Freshfields advises some of the world’s biggest companies on how to grow, strengthen and defend their business. If you’re keen to pursue a career in commercial law, we can offer you some of the best and most interesting work around.
Because we support clients wherever in the world they operate, you’ll play a part in delivering a consistent, high-quality service across the globe.
It doesn’t matter what your background is, which university you went to or the degree you studied. What does matter is that you have intellectual talent, excellent written and spoken English, and that you work well with other people.
The work you’ll do with us will nearly always be complicated, so to do well you’ll need to enjoy being challenged.
Flexibility is key in our training contract. If you train with us, you can try up to eight areas of law. That’s twice as many as most law firms. The corporate, dispute resolution and finance practices are the core of the firm, so we’ll expect you to spend at least three months in each of these groups. You’ll also get the chance to spend time on secondment to a client or to one of our offices in the US, Asia or Europe.
