Our Locations

We have opportunities for trainees to be based in either London or Reading and you can expect to undertake the majority of your seats in this location.

When asking trainees to travel to another office travel expenses over and above your usual costs will be covered.

Trainees based in each location will experience the same excellent training and supportive environment to work in. Opportunities for secondments will be available to all trainees and we take your preferences for seats into consideration.
All of our offices have active social committees and sports teams are supported by the firm. Trainees are welcome to get involved in these activities as well as our CSR committee, pro bono opportunities and groups such as our LGBTQ+ network, Best Self. For more information about what we do see the CSR and Diversity and Inclusion pages.
