Bring your colour
Great minds don’t think alike. In fact, the opposite is true. At Addleshaw Goddard, we’re constantly surprised (and delighted) by where our best lawyers come from.
We’ll take that authenticity and give you the experiences, training and exposure to capitalise. The career you’ll launch with us will be every bit the one-off that you are.
CAMARADERIE NOT HIERARCHY
Collaboration is everything here. We’re a growing, forward-looking organisation where talented people challenge each other and reach further together.
We don't just create dedicated lawyers here. We'll turn you into the trusted, go-to advisor for your clients. Your training contract will last two years and in this time you will complete four six-month seats. You'll have a wide variety of meaningful work - anything from multi-million-pound banking deals to cross-border mergers, high profile fraud cases, and huge construction assignments. You’ll also collaborate with some of our brightest minds, developing the connections and skills you need to qualify in one of the UK’s most respected law firms.
CORPORATE & COMMERCIAL
From providing trademark services for a leading fashion house to acting on a £2 billion securities issue for a retail client, our Commercial and Corporate division manages and transacts large-scale, multi-jurisdictional deals. This means working with highly experienced lawyers on deals of global significance, with exposure to challenging and complex legal matters.
Our litigation practice is one of the best in the business. We’ve built our reputation representing major global banks and conglomerates in large-scale disputes, providing high-end legal advice for claimants, appellants and defendants. Here you’ll learn about our advanced commercial approach to dispute resolution.
FINANCE AND PROJECTS
Our Finance and Projects division delivers strength in depth across three main areas of practice: Banking, Business Support and Restructuring, and Infrastructure, Projects and Energy. With our expertise in corporate banking, social infrastructure and dispute resolution, you’ll work on challenging cases that mirror the changing face of national and international finance.
We work at the forefront of emerging markets, including real asset classes such as student accommodation, private rented, infrastructure and energy. A seat with this team will equip you with an advanced skill set geared to the future of real estate.
Tomorrow, the world
We’re proud of the lasting connections we’ve created with people and businesses around the globe. Today, we have an international network covering the UK, Europe, Asia and the GCC countries. From the outset, you’ll be part of it. You might even have the chance to explore through one of our many secondment opportunities.
DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
You are not a type
From the moment AG was created, we set ourselves the challenge of bringing great minds together. To us, that’s always meant being supportive of excellence wherever we find it.
There’s never been an Addleshaw Goddard type. Our success has been built by a people from the widest range of backgrounds, locations and perspectives. Diversity and inclusion have underpinned our growth and shaped our identity as a firm. Today, they’re still defining our future.
Our reputation as a leading firm to work with has been consistently recognised. Everything from being a pioneer in the field of shared parental leave to winning Global Dispute of the Year for UK Litigation. Everything we’ve accomplished can be traced back to our people and the way we work: doing our best, together.
We have won many other awards over the years, including:
- Top employer for women in The Times Top 50 list
