WHO WE ARE
Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer is one of a handful of leading international law firms, with 28 offices across the world.
MORE ABOUT US
The type of work we do divides into helping clients achieve what they want through doing deals, advising them on real and potential problems, and helping them sort out their disputes. Trainees who join our London training programme can move departments every three months, so they can see more of what’s on offer. All departments provide formal training. But trainees learn most by working for clients alongside the firm’s more experienced lawyers. They learn in London and other offices in the US, Europe and Asia. Some are also seconded to clients.
WHO WE ARE LOOKING FOR
We recruit around 100 trainees each year to train with us in our London office. Whatever their background, trainees need some non-negotiable qualities. They need to be intellectually talented and have excellent English skills. They need to enjoy working on difficult problems, working alongside others, and never doing less than the best they can. Our LGBT network helps engender the supportive atmosphere fostered by the firm and holds regular events.
