Training contract in boutique IP/IT Law Firm
Location: SE1 - London Bridge
Start Date: negotiable
Waterfront Solicitors was established 19 years ago to provide legal services to the IT industry. Although the firm has expanded its practice since then, it has remained focused on providing commercial legal advice in this sector. We are ranked very highly for IT in the Legal 500. We are also ranked in Chambers and the Legal 500 for Intellectual Property.
Our firm is growing along with our reputation and this is an exciting opportunity for someone with a genuine desire to work with a client base led by technology clients to join a team that is often working with companies at the forefront of technological innovation.
We pride ourselves on the training and client exposure that we are able to provide our trainee solicitors. We currently have two trainees who will qualify shortly and we are wishing to recruit one or two more in their place.
Whilst providing an opportunity for training in our IT, IP, corporate and employment teams, it is anticipated that your first seats will be in the non-contentious IT/Commercial Contracts or Corporate teams, where we have an immediate requirement for support.
We are particularly interested in applications from people who have experience working in any of our areas of expertise, whether as a paralegal, contracts manager or similar. We would also like to encourage applications from individuals with previous experience working in the tech sector in any capacity.
Our firm is young, dynamic and exciting. We believe in providing a supportive and nurturing environment for our team. Whilst taking our training obligations very seriously, we do not believe in stifling the training experience with unnecessary red tape. You will be treated as part of the team from day one and we only offer training contracts to people who we think are going to be part of the long term future of our firm.
Applicants should send a covering letter and up to date CV for the attention of the Practice Manager to firstname.lastname@example.org or upload your application below.
Due to the number of applications we generally receive, please note we may only be able to respond to those applicants who are selected for interview.
