Firm description and career prospects
Mishcon de Reya is a London-based commercial law firm that works with clients in building businesses, protecting assets, managing wealth and resolving disputes.
Types of work
Organised internally into six key departments – corporate, employment, litigation, property, family and private. The firm also has a growing number of specialist groups which include: banking and finance, defamation, employment, fraud, immigration, services to private clients, sports and media and reputation management.
Who should apply
Applications are welcome from penultimate-year law students, final-year non-law students and other graduates wishing to commence a training contract in two years' time. The firm recruits from a wide range of universities.
Our trainees are typically high achieving and intelligent, with good interpersonal skills and outgoing personalities. Strength of character and the ability to think laterally are also important.
Full LPC and GDL funding. Living allowance of £6,000 payable in the GDL and LPC year.
Our spring and summer schemes offers up to two-week placements in two of our departments. Closing dates for the 2017/18 schemes is 15 January 2018.
Training contract programme
Trainees have the opportunity to experience four different seats of six months each. We are structured into six main departments; real estate, litigation, family, corporate, employment and private. Because of the relatively few training contracts offered, trainees can expect to be exposed to high-quality work with early responsibility. In order to support this, the firm has a wide-ranging training and education programme, and provides extensive internal training in addition to the Professional Skills Course.
Trainee performance is monitored closely and trainees can expect to receive regular feedback.
Private, corporate, litigation, family, employment, real estate.
