The Firm

Takeovers and mergers. Arbitration and litigation. We’ve got it all. And because we’re one of the world’s leading law firms, we also work with some of the biggest international organisations on some of their most ambitious projects. We’re market-leaders in Asia Pacific and we have over 2,900 lawyers in offices across Asia, Australia, Europe, the Middle East and the USA. Working across borders is a key part of our philosophy. And, thanks to the quality of our international network, we’re able to offer our clients both domestic and cross-border services.

The Work

Our work is incredibly varied. We provide top quality tailored legal advice to major corporations, governments and financial institutions as well as different types of commercial organisations. Our dispute resolution practice is number one in the UK, Asia and Australia and includes both our leading international arbitration practice and award-winning in-house advocacy unit – meaning we can offer a complete litigation service and a realistic alternative to the bar. We also have a market leading corporate practice. And that’s not all. Our other practice areas include finance, competition, regulation and trade and real estate and employment, plus specialist areas like intellectual property and tax. Herbert Smith Freehills prides itself on being a world class law firm that brings together the best people to achieve the best results for clients.

Trainee Profile

We look for people with the drive to make the most of the opportunities on offer and the ambition to become brilliant lawyers. As well as a great academic record, you’ll need to be commercially minded and willing to build relationships with clients and colleagues alike. And if you’re also assured, perceptive and empathetic, we’ll give you more than the chance to experience everything. We’ll give you the chance to be a part of it.
