Firm description and career prospects

Freeth Cartwright LLP is a regional firm. Tracing its origins in the East Midlands back to 1805, the firm became Nottingham's largest firm in 1994, and has since pursued its dynamic strategy of becoming a regional law firm, with successful offices now established in Birmingham, Derby, Leicester, London, Manchester, Milton Keynes, Oxford, Sheffield and Stoke. While Freeth Cartwright LLP is a heavyweight commercial firm, serving a wide variety of corporate and institutional clients, there is also a strong commitment to a broad range of legal services, which includes a substantial private client element. This enables us to give a breadth of experience in training which is not always available in firms of a similar size.

Types of work

The firm covers a wide range of work and is organised into four divisions: real estate and construction, commercial services, private client and personal litigation.


Discretionary LPC funding on the Direct Entry Training Programme. GDL and LPC fees are paid on the Training Contract with Part Time Study Programme.
