Things are on the up at Chicago-headquartered Mayer Brown, where the London base funnels work from East and West.

The Firm

Mayer Brown was one of the first law firms to develop a global platform in recognition of the fact that many of its clients increasingly needed integrated, cross border legal advice. The firm is now one of the world’s leading global law firms with offices in major cities across the Americas, Asia, Europe and the Middle East. In Brazil, the firm has an association with Tauil & Chequer Avogados. Through the association, the extensive international expertise of its lawyers and its presence in the leading financial centres around the world, Mayer Brown provides high quality legal advice and client-focused solutions to support many of the world’s leading businesses.

The Work

Their lawyers have expertise across a wide range of areas including corporate, finance, real estate, construction, litigation and dispute resolution, employment, pensions, antitrust and competition, insurance and reinsurance, tax, financial services regulatory and intellectual property.

Trainee Profile

One of the advantages of joining Mayer Brown are the choices available to you. As a trainee at the firm, you will be able to tailor your training contract across a broad range of seats, including their main practice areas in London (as listed above), and international secondments in either Hong Kong or New York. If you don’t want to stray too far, you have the option to gain valuable in house experience by going on secondment to one of the firm’s major clients. Whilst Mayer Brown is a global law firm, their London office remains a tightly knit team with an open and inclusive culture. You will be given significant opportunities to assist on matters which may be multi-disciplinary, cross-border, complex and high-profile in nature.
