In light of the current global coronavirus pandemic, we have reluctantly taken the decision to defer the application process for our 2022 training contracts, originally due to take place this summer. This decision has not been taken lightly as we place great value on our trainee solicitors who are a vital part of our firm. We will be looking into various options around holding this later in the year. Please keep in touch with us via our website for updates.

The firm

Cripps Pemberton Greenish is one of the country’s leading legal practices serving corporate, real estate and private clients. With more than 450 people across our offices in Kent and London, we focus on delivering an exceptional service to our clients. 

We are more than just a law firm. We genuinely care about our clients, our work, our people and the world around us. We don’t believe in hierarchies, empowering everyone to express opinions and imagine new ways to achieve the best outcomes for our clients. Whether advising a real estate investor, a fast-growing business or a private individual, our approach is the same – making our client’s objectives our own and ensuring their experience is as enjoyable as possible.

Principal areas of work

Businesses and organisations: Our award-winning corporate team supports many of the UK’s most exciting businesses from innovative start-ups to global brands. Dedicated teams advise on mergers, acquisitions and disposals, corporate finance, corporate tax, employment and HR services, commercial contracts, and commercial dispute resolution. Typical clients range from entrepreneurial businesses to international companies who need a personal, flexible service coupled with astute commercial advice. In 2019, the team won Corporate Team of the Year at the Southeast Dealmaker Awards and were recognised in The Times Best Law Firm Guide.

Business owners: Our unusual combination of private client and commercial capabilities are of considerable advantage to business owners whose personal and business needs overlap. We take a holistic view of each client’s overall situation and advise on corporate entities and structures, personal and family ownership of business assets, and disposals and transfers, linking these with the structuring of personal tax, wealth management and inheritance affairs.

Individuals and families: Our private client team is one of the largest in the country. We help people to maximise their assets and makes their lives easier by taking the burden out of managing their personal affairs, in particular on complex trust and tax issues. Working nationally and internationally, we also help clients with all types of estate, property and inheritance issues. Cripps Pemberton Greenish is a member of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme and the Wills and Inheritance Quality Scheme.

Real estate: With one of the UK’s largest commercial real estate teams, we advise on every aspect of the property life cycle from raising investment funds, planning a commercial or residential development, to managing a property portfolio. We work for some of the country’s largest property owners, developers and investors, as well as advising on the property needs of medium-sized and smaller entrepreneurial businesses and investors. Clients also benefit from the largest dedicated property dispute resolution team in the South East, which advises on all types of contentious property issues.

Sector focus: Multi-disciplined teams combine industry knowledge and understanding to deliver advice and solutions to businesses in a range of industries. These include real estate investors and developers; advertising, technology and media businesses; retailers; central and local government; pharmacists, dentists and care providers; food and drink businesses; hospitality and leisure clients; professional practices, financial institutions and investors; and, charities.

Recruitment: We recruit like-minded people into all parts of the firm. Our lawyers are either home-grown through the firm’s comprehensive training scheme or join from other high-quality, city, national and regional firms and are complemented by high quality business support professionals.

Expertise and experience are not enough, how we work matters. We look for lawyers who will care more, imagine better, enjoy their work and consistently achieve for clients.

All our people appreciate the interactive, positive and non-hierarchical working culture in which everyone is valued.

We offer a comprehensive induction programme and ongoing training throughout the two year contract. Support is provided regularly through structured reviews and on-the-job coaching. We offer a four-seat training contract which provides excellent hands-on experience to the training experience. Levels of responsibility are high with many trainees managing their own files under supervision.

Cripps Pemberton Greenish has an exclusive deal with the BPP Law School for LPC and PSC studies. This provides all our future trainees with discounted rates. In addition, from 2021, LPC fees will be 100% funded if via BPP. We can also access a discount on the GDL fees if with the BPP.
