Freshfields overview

Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer is a major international law firm, providing business law advice of the highest quality. We want to be the law firm that clients turn to for legal advice where it most matters, wherever in the world that may be. The Firm has over 2,400 lawyers in 28 offices around the world, providing a comprehensive service to national and multinational corporations, financial institutions and governments.

Our people make our firm - we are a people business and want to create a welcoming and supportive environment where all can flourish. We see diversity as a strength which creates fresh perspectives and generates new ideas. We enjoy our work and are determined to do an outstanding job. We deliver best when working in teams.

We think and work globally - we don’t just say we are one firm; we act like one firm right across the world. We work wherever our clients need us. This is how we define ourselves, not by reference to where we have offices. Cross-border work isn’t just what we do, it is what we excel at. We understand what it really takes to work across different legal systems and commercial environments and to bridge language and cultural gaps.

We aim to add value in everything we do - we are passionate about helping our clients succeed. We use our experience and creativity to help clients make judgements and achieve their goals. In everything we do, we seek to make a real difference to the communities in which we operate.


We’ll show you what life as an international commercial lawyer is like, and what sets us apart from other firms, so you can make a confident decision on whether to apply for the spring scheme, vacation scheme or training contract. You’ll also meet trainees, associates and partners, and learn about improving your application from our graduate recruitment team.

Our 2020/2021 workshops and events were held virtually. We hope that our 2021/2022 workshops can be held in person at our new Bishopsgate location, although this will be determined on further guidance from the firm. Alternatively, we are open to host virtually again this year.

Non-law Workshop

The one-day workshop is open to undergraduates of a non-law degree. (If you are a non-law graduate you can apply for our graduate workshop).

You’ll spend the day developing your business understanding ahead of applying. The sessions are designed to demystify what it means to be a commercial lawyer and demonstrate how our application process works in order to put you in good stead for approaching the training contract selection process.
