Our current trainees


    Future Trainee

    When completing my two-week summer vacation scheme, I saw that diversity was not only reflected in the backgrounds of the staff but also in the array of work practised at the firm.

    Whilst all the tasks I was involved in were interesting and challenging, it was the fact that my potential was recognised and encouraged that won me over. Being a trainee at Fieldfisher isn’t about fitting a ‘type’ but receiving the right supervision, skills and support to be the best solicitor that you can be.


    First year Trainee

    The training programme at Fieldfisher appealed to me because of the firm’s prestigious client base, unique mix of practice areas, and open friendly atmosphere.

    Despite having been in the Public & Regulatory Law Group for less than a month, I have already worked on a variety of high-profile matters, for example the Hillsborough Inquests, something I was keen to get involved in before I joined the firm.

    On only my second day in the department, I was invited by a partner to attend a hearing at the Royal Courts of Justice for the Litvinenko Inquiry – a pretty exciting start to my role as a trainee! Other highlights for me so far include writing my own legal advice and liaising directly with clients.


    Second year Trainee

    I have been at Fieldfisher for over a year and it’s been great! So far I have sat within the firm’s Commercial IP Media team and the Banking and Asset Finance team. I have been given an amazing amount of responsibility and worked on highly complex and fascinating deals.

    In terms of firm culture, I can honestly say that everyone at Fieldfisher is friendly and approachable. From the support staff to the Partners, everyone is willing to answer your questions, no matter how silly! And everyone is a team- player, clubbing together across departments to provide the best sector support to our clients.



    I originally applied to Fieldfisher because it was, and still is, one of the leading firms in the IP/IT sector. Following my training, I made the decision to qualify into Fieldfisher’s Technology, Outsourcing and Privacy Group which is one of the biggest and best in Europe.

    My experience as a trainee at Fieldfisher has been an overwhelmingly positive one. I was given exposure to a wide variety of work in the Technology, Outsourcing & Privacy, Dispute Resolution and Media practice groups as well as spending 6 months on secondment to our Brussels office working on competition matters.

Training Principal

"I joined Fieldfisher as a trainee over 20 years ago, and I’m thrilled that I’m still here, as a partner and as our training principal.

The firm has gone from strength to strength over that time – and the people here have been consistently brilliant in giving me the freedom and the support to develop my career and to build a practice in an innovative and exciting area of law."
