Firm description and career prospects

Freeths is a national law 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 also established in Birmingham, Derby, Leeds, Leicester, London, Manchester, Milton Keynes, Nottingham, Oxford, Sheffield and Stoke. While Freeths 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.
