Join Freshfields and you’ll get the chance to work internationally on the world’s most complex legal challenges.


As a Freshfields trainee, you can apply for a secondment in our global network of 28 offices (including Paris, Hong Kong, Dubai and New York). You can also apply for a client secondment, including with our pro bono clients.

Even when you’re in London, you’ll still be working worldwide, perhaps taking instructions from Singapore in the morning and talking to counsel in Brazil in the afternoon.

An example of one of our high profile deals that you may end up working on is the Comcast Sky acquisition - hear from the partners and associates who worked on that deal below.
