Training Contract 2022
Trainees spend six months in four different departments. Working in a team with a partner and an associate provides autonomy, responsibility and fast development. Buddy and mentor systems as well as on the job training ensure.
Training seats are allocated following consultation with the trainee to ensure that consideration is given to their career aspirations alongside the firm's business needs. Our ultimate aim is to ensure that trainees receive a balanced training experience during the two year period.
Trainees are assigned a seat supervisor for each seat, who will provide work and be responsible for providing training and feedback on performance. Two appraisals take place in each seat: a mid-seat and an end-seat where objectives are set and evaluated.
Our possible training seats are listed below:
· Wealth Planning
· Corporate and Commercial
· CTSG (Contentious Trusts and Succession Group)
· Property Litigation
· Real Estate
· Commercial Litigation and Arbitration
There may also be the opportunity to spend one of your seats in one of our international offices. There are currently trainee seats in Hong Kong, Milan and Geneva.
