Further information

Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer is one of a handful of leading international law firms, with offices across the world.

Our clients are mainly big commercial businesses whose names are well-known. 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. Our practice is very diverse, and constantly changing to meet our clients’ evolving needs.

Clients look to the firm to be able to answer any legal or regulatory questions that confront them. Organisationally, the firm’s lawyers work in one of eight departments: corporate; finance; dispute resolution; real estate; intellectual property/IT; tax; employment, pensions and benefits; and antitrust, competition and trade.

Training Contracts
We are looking for around 90 trainees to start training with us in London in 2016, split between two intakes in February and August. Current trainees studied at nearly 50 different universities. Many did a law degree, but others read subjects ranging from music to biochemistry.

Applications for our 2018 training contracts will be open from 1 October 2015 - 6 January 2016 (all applicants) and 1 June - 31 July 2016 (law applicants only).

Vacation Scheme
We are offering 60 placements in 2016. Our vacation scheme gives students a good idea of what life is like as an international commercial lawyer, and what life would be like at Freshfields. It's fun as well as hard work.

Applications for our 2016 schemes open on 1 October 2015 and close on 6 January 2016.
