Taylor Vinters is an international law firm supporting the businesses which drive the innovation economy, and the entrepreneurs and private wealth that underpin them. Our passion for working with innovators and entrepreneurs is a mind-set, not a sector or a market. It is about being part of a tribe – our people, clients and collaborators – who think and have the courage to behave in the same way. To understand more about our strategy and culture, take a look at www.significant-times.com.
Our practice is global, operating from innovation clusters in the UK and Asia. Key practice areas include: corporate, commercial and technology, IP, commercial disputes, employment, insolvency, competition, commercial real estate, charities and social ventures, funding and growth, private real estate, matrimonial, trusts and estates.
In our trainees we look for people who are brimming with enthusiasm and passion for what they do. You’ll also need a pragmatic outlook and commercial awareness as our clients rely on their business brains as much as legal expertise. More information on life at Taylor Vinters can be found across our social channels YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn.
Our vacation scheme runs during June and July and lasts for two weeks. You’ll spend time in two different departments, in our Cambridge and London offices, providing a fantastic opportunity to get first-hand experience of what it is like to work at Taylor Vinters. It may only be two weeks, but it will be an intense and exciting period of discovery – for you and for us.
Our applications will open in the autumn with up to 20 places offered each year. We hire only from our vacation scheme and to qualify, you must to be an undergraduate or postgraduate student who can start a training contract with us within two years.
Your development programme will be tailored around your skills, interests and aspirations and you’ll experience real client work, responsibility and high levels of autonomy from an early stage as well as support through expert advice from some of the industry’s most forward thinking lawyers.
During your two-year programme, you’ll complete four seats in different legal disciplines, in our Cambridge and London offices, to help you decide which aspects of the law interest you most. During your training contract, you’ll also complete your Professional Skills Course (PSC), which we’ll pay for.
Please note that we recruit only from our vacation scheme.
