Being a lawyer, particularly at a firm like Allen & Overy, means advising clients on the most significant matters affecting their business.
Doing it well means delivering technically excellent and commercially astute advice. We require lawyers who are not only able to deal with the increasing complexity of issues that our clients face, but who are also able to apply different skills to a variety of situations.
Joining the firm as a trainee, you will have an important role to play and the tasks you handle will not only add significant value to our clients, but will also help you to put the legal advice we give in a commercial context.
You will have a supervisor, a Senior Associate, who will always be willing to answer your questions so that you have everything you need to contribute in a meaningful way. However, at the same time your supervisor will set high standards and expect you to exceed them. They will recognise your successes and highlight where you can improve.
Allen & Overy is a collection of interesting, and interested, people who are alert and alive to opportunities to help our clients and are excited by building these new relationships.
These are the qualities we are looking for in the Allen & Overy lawyers of tomorrow.
