We are an ambitious UK commercial law firm, with a growing reputation. We have grown by 50% in the last five years with revenues reaching £87.6m in 2018/19.

We are described by clients as an ‘energetic firm’ with an ‘open-minded entrepreneurial culture’ and have previously been named as a ‘first class’ employer by Best Companies Limited.

We recruit graduates with the potential to become brilliant lawyers. No matter your background - law degree or not, post-graduate or career change; we'll support you every step of the way. We want you to thrive and grow professionally so expect to work alongside partners and their teams and get involved in meaningful client work from day one.

With no compulsory seats and a choice of 32 practice areas, you’ll get stuck into a variety of exciting live cases for a wide range of high profile clients. We’ll provide a blend of one-to-one mentoring, coaching and award-winning training programmes.

You’ll work with a dedicated supervisor to create a personal development plan, tailored to your aspirations and ambitions, and we’ll make sure you have the tools you need to excel. 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.

Our training contracts are available in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Belfast, Manchester, London and Bristol. They are open to second-year law students, final-year law or non-law students, graduates and mature candidates.

We would strongly advise vacation scheme applications if you’re interested in training with TLT.
