Firm description and career prospects
At Goodwin, we encourage collaboration across practices, industry teams and geographies, ensuring the most integrated, solutions-oriented results for our clients. Our culture fosters an open, inclusive and collegial atmosphere. As a trainee in our London office you will join our cohesive group of people from different backgrounds, working together on challenging deals and complex cases. With more than 1,000 lawyers across 10 offices in the US, Asia and Europe, we are proud of our commitment to excellence, the interesting matters we handle and the impressive clients we serve.
Our London office has grown significantly over the past year. With over 75 lawyers working on complex and high profile matters you will find a well-rounded team in our London office to help you reach your full potential in your legal career.
Your career path at Goodwin may take you in any number of directions. We ensure you will be well-prepared for a wide range of professional opportunities. We invite you to take a closer look and find out why a career here is a great idea.
We offer full sponsorship of both the GDL and LPC, together with a maintenance grant of £7,000 to all our future trainees.
We are launching our first two-week summer vacation scheme in 2018, and will have eight places available. Applications are open to all post-graduate and undergraduate students, in any degree discipline. Unfortunately we are not able to accept applications from first-year students for our vacation scheme.
A vacation scheme is the perfect way to get hands-on experience working with our teams and to see what delivering advice on some of the most high profile and complex matters entails. The scheme provides real insight into what it is like to train and work at Goodwin, and gives us a window to get to know you better.
Training contract programme
At Goodwin, we have designed our training contract to encourage you to maximise your potential from the beginning of the graduate programme. You will be part of a small intake with exposure to clients from the moment you start. We form smaller teams allowing program participants room to shine and make an impact.
Our objective is to see you transition over the two-year period from a talented law student to a confident, professional lawyer. Working in a supportive environment, you will be immersed in actual legal work. You will receive personal attention combined with early responsibility.
Your four rotations will include seats in our core sectors of private equity and real estate plus two other practice areas. This ensures you will have the widest exposure to our business while meeting the requirements of the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA). You will satisfy the contentious requirement by attending an external course.
Private equity, tax, finance, real estate (transactional), corporate real estate, funds.
