The firm advises on a broad range of legal and commercial issues in a variety of practice areas, including Banking and Finance, Corporate, Dispute Resolution, Energy and Sustainability, Housing, Private Wealth, Public Sector, Real estate and Telecoms, Media and Technology. Trowers & Hamlins recruits 23 trainees a year, split between March and September intakes and based at its offices in London, Birmingham, Exeter and Manchester. All trainees work across a range of seats and those in London have the opportunity to spend time in one of our offices in the Middle East.
