Training is core to the firm’s operations.

It was one of the standout features when I was applying for a training contract and continues post-qualification. I still have training now.

For me, Freshfields’ culture is open.

I’m an underground music producer, DJ and an expressionist painter, so I’m a creative person. But that’s fine here – I fit in and don’t have to hide what I do on the weekends. Freshfields has the foresight to recognise that cognitive diversity is beneficial.

The firm has supported my efforts to promote under-represented groups in society as a whole, not just within the firm.

I was recently elected as a member of the British Chamber of Commerce in Japan Executive Committee – the first person of colour to be elected since it was established in 1948. My nomination had the firm’s backing.

Choosing a firm is like finding a place to live. 

You’ll get a gut reaction if the place is right for you.

 

We’re a very close network.

My colleagues immediately had my back when I had a family emergency and the firm prides itself on this culture.

People here are human.

Work can be tough at times, but you can speak up if you feel overwhelmed. You won’t be judged – rather your honesty will be appreciated.

You’ll be working with an incredible bunch of talented people,

many of whom are some of the best lawyers in the world.

We’re global.

I usually communicate on a daily basis with lawyers across four or five countries. I’ve been lucky enough to work in three of the firm’s global offices – I trained in London, I’ve worked in the Abu Dhabi office and I’m now based in Tokyo.

Freshfields in three words?

Distinction, appreciative, collegiate.

Eight-seat training contract

Our eight-seat training contract sets you up for the work you’ll be doing as an international lawyer.

Work with the best people

You’ll be working with driven, focused and ambitious people from all over the world.
