This is a firm where trainees quickly feel at home. That’s partly because of our people. The fact that we look out for each other. Our partners are approachable and will be keen to support your development. Meanwhile, our diversity networks help ensure our firm fully reflects the communities we work in. 


Perhaps the best way to get a sense of what it’s like to work here is to hear what our people have to say.

Outside the Box

Our students and trainees come from all walks of life – and we wouldn’t have it any other way. But there are certain traits that we look for in everyone here. You need to be ambitious. Committed, with a sense of curiosity and adventure. You also need to be an independent thinker. One of the reasons why our clients choose us is because we’re never afraid to break the mould.

What we look for


We look for people who are hungry to succeed – people who always go above and beyond to achieve their goals. You’ll enjoy taking on responsibility right from the outset and will relish the opportunity to broaden your skills in diverse seats as well as on client or international secondments.

Independent thinking

This is an environment where problem solvers thrive. And while our culture is incredibly collaborative, we also look for people who are full of initiative and happy to stand on their own two feet. Not least because we always welcome new ideas and different perspectives.

Curiosity and commitment

Life here means asking questions. Taking an interest in every new opportunity – and seizing the moment. You’ll be committed to delivering exceptional work for our clients and to making the most of every opportunity to learn and develop that comes your way.

A sense of adventure

If you’re always up for a challenge and you love to come up with new ideas and find yourself in new situations, we think you’ll feel very at home with us. We think one of the best ways to learn, grow and progress is to step out of your comfort zone. Get ready to explore your potential to the full.

Diversity & Inclusion

We work with diverse clients. So it makes very good business sense for us to have a diverse team. But for us, diversity is about more than that. It’s about tapping into different mindsets. Celebrating individuality. Recognising that fresh perspectives can open up new possibilities for our firm, and for our clients. And it’s about making this a fantastic, inclusive place to work.
