At Michelmores we put our clients at the heart of everything we do. We advise clients on a broad range of legal matters across the UK and internationally. With offices in London, Exeter and Bristol we are well placed to work with a diverse range of clients, with a specific focus on Finance and Investment, Private Wealth and Real Estate.
We are excited to be recruiting London based trainees to join the Firm in 2019, 2020 and 2021. Successful candidates will join our established two-year Trainee Development Programme, which focuses on the building technical and business skills that are fundamental for you to become a successful solicitor.
Structure of Training
You will spend six months in four different practice areas within our London office. Over the two years you will have the opportunity to gain exposure to each of our key focus areas. In each seat you will be allocated a supervisor who will support, encourage and supervise you during your seat with them. You will also have access to a 'buddy' during the lead up to joining the Firm and regular interaction with our Trainee Mentors once you are here.
Our trainees are given a high level of responsibility and client contact from day one. You will be running your own files, working in a team on bigger transactions and experiencing client contact on the phone, in meetings and at networking events. As the only trainee in each team, you will experience a varied workload with the opportunity to work alongside and learn from a number of our talented partners and lawyers.
