We’re TLT, a thriving top 50 UK-wide law firm built around the needs of our clients. Just like you, we’re ambitious. But we know that ambition alone isn’t enough to succeed in this incredibly competitive market. And it’s the way we work that keeps us growing from strength to strength. Refusing to be constricted by outdated attitudes, we have a flexible, innovative approach to how we do things and a culture of togetherness where fresh ideas are valued, hard work is recognised and everyone can get out every bit as much as they put in.

Since 2002, we’ve more than tripled in size, opening offices in Belfast, Edinburgh, Glasgow, London and Manchester to add to our Bristol headquarters. We are now over 1,000 people strong with an enviable portfolio of large corporates, public institutions and high growth businesses across the UK including Barclays, Sainsbury’s, Merlin Entertainment, EDF Energy, EE, Greene King and many more. With revenues at £71.6m in 2015/16, our ambitious growth plans present exciting opportunities for talented individuals to develop, progress and contribute to our goals, while achieving your own.

We’ll support you from day one, providing a blend of one-to-one mentoring, coaching and award-winning training programmes.

Our open plan offices will make it easy for you to build meaningful relationships with Partners, and advice and guidance will never be far away.

During Easter and summer each year, we run week-long vacation schemes in Bristol, London and Manchester. They’re the perfect opportunity for you get a taster of what it’s like to be at trainee at TLT. You’ll get stuck into real client work, have the chance to network with lawyers and Partners over breakfast seminars and ask existing trainees any niggling questions you have. What’s more, we’ve built an assessment into the week so you won’t have to worry about making a separate training contract application.
