Firm description and career prospects
Druces may be over 250 years old, but we invest a great deal of time and resources into staying current and modern, while maintaining one of our firm’s founding beliefs; of providing first-class client services. We want to be a firm that leads the debate in our chosen industry sectors and to that end, we are involved in a number of sector collaborations which position Druces as a thought-leader, market commentator and recognised sector participant.
Our approach is guided by four principles. The first, that we are partner-led which provides a close-knit and collegiate feel to our clients and employees. Secondly, our size of firm means we have nimble, attentive and well-informed lawyers who can provide a consistent client experience. Thirdly, our legal advice is and will always be practical, tailored, clear and concise. Lastly, clients to us are individuals and we take pride in taking the time to better understand the issues they face, so that we can support and deliver the best service for them.

Training contract programme
We want to see bright creative minds join our expanding team. Druces values people skills and creativity as much as high marks and academic achievement. Trainee recruitment is an important process for us as it gives us the opportunity to recruit people whom we hope will grow with us. Druces wants to recruit dedicated and committed individuals who want to contribute to the continuing success of Druces and develop extremely rewarding careers.
Unlike larger firms, Druces provides opportunities for much more hands-on experience and one-on-one attention from our highly experienced solicitors. As a Druces trainee you will get a first-class legal grounding and access to experienced lawyers and partners.
We will work with you and help you to become the most astute and commercial lawyer you can possibly be. You will spend six-month stages in the following four practice areas:
Property; litigation and dispute resolution; private client; and corporate and commercial.
