Penningtons Manches Cooper is an ambitious, leading UK and international law firm with a 300 year history. Every year we recruit exceptional graduates to help us in our objective of advising clients with innovative ideas, technical expertise and a personal service founded on a strong team ethic.
Today, we have UK offices in the City of London, Basingstoke, Birmingham, Cambridge, Guildford, Oxford and Reading while our overseas network stretches from Asia to America through our presence in Singapore, Piraeus, Paris, Madrid, Sao Paulo and San Francisco. With 141 partners and over 850 people in total, our main areas of practice are dispute resolution, corporate and commercial, real estate, private client and family.
Following ten consecutive years of growth and our merger with shipping, international trade and finance specialist Thomas Cooper in July 2019, we are well positioned for further expansion. This strong performance combined with our impressive directory rankings, sector focus and award winning training and wellbeing programmes make the firm an exciting place in which to progress your legal career.
Information days are conducted during Easter. They are primarily aimed at those considering a career in law but are not yet eligible for vacation schemes (i.e. first year law students, penultimate year non-law students, career changers etc.). These days are spent; understanding the firm’s areas of practice, speaking with a range of employees (including trainees) on their reasons for choosing the firm, the training experience, developing skills required as a trainee, meeting the graduate recruitment team for advice on future applications and gaining a greater understanding of the firms culture.
We offer around 40-50 places per year and the deadline for applications is 31st January 2020.
