HFW Logo

We are an entrepreneurial law firm. We operate in dynamic, global sectors including construction, aviation, shipping, insurance, commodities and energy. We are pragmatic, and creative; our clients say “less traditional” – “progressive”, even. Every year we recruit only a small number of trainees- 15 per year. A training contract at HFW consists of four six month seats – typically three contentious seats and one transactional seat, with at least one seat spent abroad gaining a global perspective of our work, our sectors and our clients.

Attend this open day to find out more about the market-leading work that we do, and our global training contract. The open day will provide opportunities to hear from Partner, Associates and Trainees about their experiences of HFW and their careers to-date. We will also provide information on our sectors to help you to understand more about the work that you would do as a future trainee or vacation scheme attendee. You will attend a speed networking session with Associates and a skills session with the Graduate Recruitment Team focused on how to stand out in the HFW recruitment process.

This event is aimed at penultimate and final year law students, final year non-law students and graduates.
