At Fieldfisher, people are vital to our success. Our clients choose us for our expertise, our understanding, and our insight. Without the support and fresh perspectives of our Trainees and Apprentices, this would not be possible.

It’s our entrepreneurial, tech-savvy thinking that makes us the law firm of choice for innovators like you.

We are a caring, sharing bunch with huge numbers involved in Corporate Responsibility. We promote inclusiveness and diversity, encourage innovation and endorse collegiality every step of the way.

Our offering is unique.  Yes, you will get to work with some amazing clients like the BBC or may be seconded to one of our international offices, but you will also work with some incredible people who are industry experts in their field. These are the people who will guide and nurture you and inspire you to achieve great things.
