The attainment of our company KPI targets.

Reporting Lines and Training

Reporting directly to the Principal Lawyer.

Training on our specific requirements will be provided as required. We also encourage and provide financial assistance with Continuing Professional Education.

A clerkship gives you a good understanding of what it’s like to work here, experience our culture and the type of work we do. In addition to gaining valuable experience, a clerkship also presents an opportunity to join our graduate programme. We offer most of the graduate roles to people who have completed a clerkship in one of our offices.

As a graduate, you can expect to:

  • work alongside partners and lawyers to develop technical skills in specific practice areas;
  • play an active role working on exciting, challenging matters – honing your project management, client communication and cross-team collaboration skills;
  • receive training to build your leadership, legal technology and digital capabilities; and
  • broaden your horizons through opportunities such as client secondments, international placements or further postgraduate study.

During your rotations, you’ll work directly with partners and lawyers and be actively involved in matters related to your practice area. This experience is complemented by a comprehensive program of professional and business development, knowledge management and pro bono work.

You’ll also be paired with a more experienced lawyer who will guide you through your rotations and your transition into a practice area. You can look to your mentor to assist you in establishing relationships across the firm and for ongoing support as needed. It’s less about developing your technical legal skills, and more about helping you forge your own career path.

We are looking for motivated and results-oriented lawyers and law graduates to join our team.
