Expect a heavily transactional experience in the “buzzing” London office.
Shearman & Sterling is one of the world’s leading premier global law firms and was established over a century ago. The London office opened over 40 years ago and quickly became one of the leading practices and quickly became one of the leading practices, covering all aspects of English, European and US corporate and finance law. Globally there are over 900 lawyers, including around 200 partners.
Our main areas of work include: M&A (including private equity), US capital markets, project development and finance, finance (including derivatives structured, acquisition and leveraged finance), international arbitration, litigation, antitrust, tax, financial institutions advisory, asset management, real estate and executive compensation and employee benefits.
Working closely with partners and associates, trainees will have the opportunity to become an integral team member, taking on real responsibility from day one. Trainees are enthusiastic and ambitious, and show a real willingness to learn and develop their skills across both technical and soft skill areas. Trainees typically share an office with a senior lawyer allowing informal learning on the job, while the structured training programme at the firm ensures trainees get exposure to all the information they need to be a success now and in the future. In addition to the cross-jurisdictional work trainees do in London, they are also encouraged to spend a seat in one of our overseas offices, allowing them to further build their global networks.
