From day one, our graduates are placed with experienced lawyers, including our full director group, to provide them with broad exposure to different people and areas of corporate expertise. By working in small teams on matters, graduates are given unique responsibilities early on in their careers. We commit to providing work that will challenge you to be your best whilst providing you with a supportive work environment.

With no formal rotations, graduates are exposed to the firm’s range of legal work and services. In addition to mergers & acquisitions, equity capital markets and general corporate law, graduates gain exposure to the firm’s dispute resolution and property practices.

What do we look for?

We look for graduates that are well-rounded in terms of grades, interests, extra-curricular activities and work experience. We value applicants that are down-to-earth and take initiative. Although commercial awareness is appreciated, we place importance on enthusiasm, motivation and hard-work.
