The Firm

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. 

But it’s not just about providing award winning, cutting edge advice, it’s about our relationships with our clients and with each other – we pride ourselves on our Fieldfisher community. 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.

New for 2021, the First Steps with Fieldfisher Programme has been designed for penultimate year students or those in their second year of a four year course. The programme will give you an insight into a career at Fieldfisher and put you in a strong position to apply for any other Early Careers programme in the future. 

On day one, you'll learn more about us, our culture, work and strategy. You will also attend workshops that will help you develop your personal and professional skillset. 

You will also have a number of opportunities to socialise with our Fee Earners through networking events and an evening social.

During day two you'll shadow a Trainee or an Associate, gaining real life experience of a Solicitor in a commercial City Law Firm.
