Why London?

Why London?

Our London office is in the heart of the City – ideally situated for the top-flight clients we advise. As you’d expect there’s a lot of M&A (we’re one of the top 10 firms for this in the City), capital markets and financial institutions work. But there’s much more to our London office than that. For example, we have one of the most highly regarded Real Estate teams in the square mile, our Digital Business team is the go-to team for cutting edge tech companies and we excel in areas like International Arbitration.


You’ll be one of 22 trainees.
