We see diversity as a strength which creates fresh perspectives and generates new ideas. We enjoy our work and are determined to do an outstanding job. We deliver best when working in teams.
We think and work globally - we don’t just say we are one firm; we act like one firm right across the world. We work wherever our clients need us.

We understand what it really takes to work across different legal systems and commercial environments and to bridge language and cultural gaps.
We aim to add value in everything we do - we are passionate about helping our clients succeed. We use our experience and creativity to help clients make judgements and achieve their goals. In everything we do, we seek to make a real difference to the communities in which we operate.
Spring Scheme Overview
We’ll show you what life as an international commercial lawyer is like, and what sets us apart from other firms, so you can make a confident decision on whether to apply for a vacation scheme or training contract. You’ll also meet trainees, associates and partners, and learn about improving your application from our graduate recruitment team. We’ll also pay your travel expenses to the office, and for accommodation for the overnight stay.
This opportunity lasts for two days in our London office and is a practical scheme to help you develop your understanding of our selection process and the skills you need to demonstrate to secure a vacation scheme. Following this you may be invited to interview for a vacation scheme commencing in 2020.
We will run two schemes: 10-11 April 2019 and 17-18 April 2019.
In order to be eligible for this programme you must be in your first year of an undergraduate degree at the time of applying.
Both schemes take place over two days in London. You must be available to attend both days from 9am – 6pm.
