Nabarro is a leading international law firm with offices in London, Sheffield, Manchester, Brussels, Singapore and Dubai. From the most successful companies in the world to fast-growth start-ups, we work with a diverse range of clients across a number of sectors. Our trainees are based in our London or Sheffield office and undertake six four-month seats, ensuring exposure to the firm's core practice areas and sectors. Applicants should apply online at You will be required to demonstrate strong academic achievement, commercial awareness, excellent interpersonal skills and teamwork, motivation and drive. Applications are welcomed from law and non-law students and we are committed to making the most of diverse skills, expertise and experience. Accordingly there is no typical Nabarro Trainee and we aim to recruit from a wide range of universities. Trainees will undertake six four-month seats to ensure maximum exposure to the firm's core practice areas (business advisory, real estate and dispute resolution). Trainees have the opportunity to gain further experience by spending time in specialist areas (e.g. pensions, IP/IT, tax, employment), possibly in our Brussels office, or on secondment to a client. Trainees usually return to the seat they wish to qualify into for the remaining four months of training. This ensures a smooth transition from trainee to qualified solicitor. We are completely committed to supporting and training our trainees. Once you have accepted a training contract with the firm we will assign you a buddy (a current trainee) who will be a point of contact and will help you to feel a part of the firm. Each trainee will be assigned a mentor, who will be a partner, when they commence their training contract. The mentor will be there to assist and support the trainee during the two years. We have a career development plan in place so that you will have a structured career path from trainee to partner. We view our trainees as our partners of the future and aim to retain all our trainees on qualification. We are the 2013, 2014 and 2015 winners of 'Best Recruiter – Large City Firm' at the LCN Awards and 2016 winner of ‘Best Trainer – Large City Firm’. In 2011, 2013 and 2015 we won 'The best short-term insight scheme' at the NUE awards, and were finalists in 2014 and 2016. In 2012 and 2013, we won the NCWE award for 'Best work placement of the year in the law sector'. We are three time winners of ‘Best undergraduate internship/vacation scheme’ at the Target National Graduate Recruitment awards. We recruit all of our trainees from our vacation schemes.
