Taylor Wessing is a leading international law firm. We work with clients in the world's most dynamic industries and help them succeed by advising on their businesses throughout their life cycle. Specialising in technology, media and communications, life sciences and private wealth, we act for 32 of the world's top 50 brands; some of the world's most exciting start-ups and unicorns; and some of the world's wealthiest families.
A diverse client base allows us to advise on more than just the law. We're a firm that encourages new ideas and different ways of doing things. Our experts play an essential role in advising clients on business growth and protection, while introducing them to new people, new markets and fresh perspectives that will help their businesses stand out and flourish.
Collaboration is key to our success. We recruit a wide range of students including those who haven't studied Law.
Taylor Wessing is "a great place to work". We were awarded Firm of the Year 2019 by Legal Cheek, which recognises all aspects of our work, clients, culture, environment and opportunities for our people.
We have been recognised by LawCareers.Net for being the 'Best Trainer' among large City firms. Our award winning training combines our in-house Professional Skills Course with six-month seats in four different practice groups, including one contentious seat and one in our corporate or finance areas. Our programme is recognised for the extent of partner contact available to trainees. You'll work closely with associates on high-quality work from the outset with client contact and secondment opportunities in their offices offered. Most importantly, regular support and feedback every step of the way ensures that your career goes in the direction you want it to.
