The role will give you exposure to high quality work for clients across the team.

Choose this Firm and you join a business on an exhilarating journey to cement its position as one of the leading international law firms. Combined with the hugely varied national and international opportunities available, your experience here will, inevitably, be stimulating and enriching.
