Calling any experienced lawyers ready to reignite their City careers.  

Are you an experienced lawyer who stepped away from a career in private practice?  Perhaps you took a complete break, worked in-house or perhaps went freelance.  Do you find yourself considering a return, motivated by the desire to get your career back on track, the opportunity for further personal development and, frankly, doing more rewarding work?

The Reignite Academy is a flexible, development-focused programme that helps City trained lawyers return to careers in private practice.  You will join one of our member firms for a six month period of paid training, coaching and work experience in your particular area of expertise.   Part time and/or flexible working is considered for most of our roles. Our member firms have locations across a variety of different locations. 


Our doors are open to people who have taken a complete break as well as those who are working but are under-employed or in roles where they are working below their potential.  You need not have trained in one of the member firms. 

We are looking for people who are:

  • UK trained and qualified lawyers
  • Enthusiastic about reigniting their private practice law careers
  • Keen to learn and looking for further personal development opportunities
  • Ready for the next phase of their career.
