A superb Training Contract opportunity with U.S. law firm in the City of London.

Locke Lord is a leading law firm with several offices across the U.S., in London and Hong Kong.

Clients range from public and private companies to start-ups and emerging businesses. Locke Lord has received numerous industry recognitions and has a rich history dating back to the 19th Century, but also has a demonstrable progressive and modern culture.

The firm has had a presence in London for decades, but opened a larger office in 2012. They have a broad service offering and support a range of clients at home and internationally on high-profile transactions, advisory work and complex disputes.

The Locke Lord London office is offering a training contract to a high-calibre law graduate preferably with the LPC to start in Spring 2020. The incoming trainee will benefit from a fostering environment in a small office, but have the opportunity to undertake seats in a range of areas supervised by experienced partners. The Locke Lord London office offers a unique blend of being a large U.S. firm with high quality work often involving an international element and the culture and feel of boutique business.

They seek an enthusiastic and versatile individual with a passion for developing their career in the City of London at an international law firm. The successful candidate is likely to have:

  • solid academics with a minimum 2:1 degree and ABB at A Level (excluding general studies);
  • workplace experience in either a law firm or comparable commercial environment;
  • completed the LPC;
  • excellent communication and interpersonal skills; and
  • the drive and ambition to succeed as a lawyer.

The firm can consider non-law graduates with the GDL and academic results outside the above parameters if there are mitigating circumstances or proven consistent high performance during your academic history.
