The Associates in the team work to a billing target of 1900 hours and, above that, there is a bonus scheme in place. The firm operates in a transparent manner and you are remunerated well for the work you do. While people have been working from home in the UK, they are now moving back to the office so you'll have that collegiality with other corporate lawyers and it will be beneficial for your learning, while you also retain some ability to work from home.

The interview process will start with testing, then an interview with 2 of the Corporate partners and, if successful, a final catch up with Associates in the team to get a feel for what it's like to be in the firm and see how you'd fit in.
