The Firm:

This leading international law firm has offices throughout every major UK city and is one of the largest law firms globally in terms of headcount and revenue. They are ranked Tier 1 in the Legal 500 across an abundance of specialisms and are recognised for their commercial awareness, innovation, and sector knowledge.

This recognition has given them an enviable client base, and you can expect to act for a multitude of multinational PLCs and household names. The quality of work is exceptional, and you can expect to gain exposure to interesting, high-value work.

They also offer a high level of flexibility, with home working commonplace even before the lockdown and reasonable targets that promote quality of service over financials.

The Role:

The Construction team has a major presence globally and specifically within Real Estate Development, Energy, and Transport. You will act on behalf of a varied and interesting client base that will give you a diverse and stimulating caseload.

As a Junior Lawyer, you will work closely alongside highly regarded Partners on complex, high-value matters whilst handling a small caseload of your own.

You can also expect an unrivalled level of client contact.
