Haynes Boone is a full service international commercial law firm with more than 600 lawyers, providing a full spectrum of legal services in 18 offices.
The London office of Haynes Boone has experience serving the corporate, energy, finance, international dispute resolution, debt capital markets, project finance and development, 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 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, shipping, corporate, finance, project finance and international dispute resolution.
Haynes Boone is introducing the SQE route to qualification for our September 2024 intake. This route will require the successful trainees joining us to have studied for and passed both SQE1 and SQE2 before commencing their two years full time qualifying work experience with us. This firm has exclusively partnered with The University of Law for SQE preparation.
All successful candidates are expected to study the SQE in London.
Applications from an LPC study route will also be given consideration and we encourage you to apply.
Haynes Boone has long been recognised as a pioneer in the area of diversity and women initiatives. The firm appears in many "Top 100" rankings related to diversity and women matters. Although we are proud of this recognition, the firm views these accomplishments as small steps towards a greater goal. We believe that recognition for our diversity efforts helps build momentum to support our recruitment and retention of the widest and best cross-section of attorney talent.
Some of the inclusion networks of which we are very proud to be part of are The LGBTQ+ Network, The Women's Initiative Network and The Working Parents and Caregivers Network. Please look at our website for more information.
The London office is proud to be in partnership with the #10000BlackInterns programme and we have made a five-year commitment to the programme. We welcome our first intern in Summer 2022.
Haynes Boone offers full sponsorship of both routes of study as well as an annual maintenance grant of £10,000 per year of study.
