A “quiet confidence” goes a long way at silver circle firm Macfarlanes, which offers an intriguing mix of high-end corporate deals and crème de la crème private client work.

The Firm

Macfarlanes is a leading City law firm with a straightforward, independently-minded approach. The driving force behind the firm is an absolute commitment to delivering the right advice in the right way to our clients. Unlike many of its competitors Macfarlanes doesn’t have any overseas offices, taking a “client first approach” to international work.

The Work

Winner of the Corporate Team of the Year in the Lawyer Awards 2017, Macfarlanes prides itself on its corporate, commercial and competition work. The firm’s ethos is found within it’s size,   whilst we’re large enough to advise on the most complex matters, we’re also small enough to ensure that our people and our work are exceptional, without fail.

Trainees Profile

Macfarlanes believes the strongest firm is achieved by choosing a mix of people – reflecting different styles so as to meet the needs that it – and its varied range of clients – will have in the future. The firm looks for a rare combination of intellectual curiosity, character and drive. It is looking for ambitious trainees who will thrive on responsibility and challenge and who are ready to begin their careers on day one. The precise allocation of seats is flexible so that it can offer you as broad a legal training as possible. Support and guidance are, of course, vital and you will find your supervisor a valuable source of information and inspiration.
