Haynes and Boone is a full service international commercial law firm with more than 575 lawyers, providing a full spectrum of legal services in 18 offices.

The London office of Haynes and Boone has experience serving the corporate, energy, finance, international dispute resolution, project finance and shipping sectors. The firm boasts a team of commercial and dispute resolution lawyers with deep industry knowledge in their core sectors. Many of our lawyers have international backgrounds; our lawyers are fluent in fourteen other languages.

Haynes and Boone will recruit and develop trainee solicitors with the aim of retaining them on qualification.

We will provide two permanent full-time contracts. Each contract will comprise one 12-month seat in the contentious (litigation/arbitration) group and a second 12-month seat in the non-contentious group. Trainees in those seats will work with different teams across the range of the firm's practice areas within the relevant group during each seat. Practical training will be given with plenty of support and feedback. You will be closely supervised and mentored by the training principal, and a partner mentor. The firm offers a competitive salary.

Our London office is structured into the following practice groups: energy and power, business litigation, financial transactions and capital markets/securities.

The application process for the 2023 training contract will follow the traditional LPC / two-year training contract route and not the new SQE route.

We sponsor your Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) and Legal Practice Course (LPC) fees in addition to providing a maintenance grant.
