Mishcon Legal Graduate and Trainee Programme

It’s not about the shape of things to come. It’s about the shapers.

The future has never been more unpredictable, demanding or challenging. Never before has there been so much information to absorb, so many social and business networks to navigate, and so many economic, political and social issues to confront. And the role of law has never been more pivotal in all of this.

At Mishcon de Reya LLP we focus on meeting these challenges for our clients every day, whether they are business or personal ones. If we have been successful, it’s because we always try to be proactive in any given situation and take the initiative for our clients rather than simply wait for events to take their course and then respond.

But if we’re going to continue to be successful, we need to find the next generation of Mishcon shapers. People who can shape the information they are given, who can shape an argument, who can shape relationships, who can shape solutions, who can shape the world around them, who can shape the future for our clients and our firm.

If this is you, keep reading. There’s more we’d like to tell you about the firm.

Whose affairs will you be shaping?

We work across six practice areas. Your client might need you to shape a solution in: Corporate, Employment, Dispute Resolution, Intellectual Property, Private or Real Estate Law.

We have extensive international expertise and a large part of our business is advising on multi-jurisdictional transactions and disputes. You could be shaping the future of the likes of American Express, BMW, Christian Louboutin, Microsoft, Net-a-Porter, Prada and Tottenham Hotspur.

To be shaped or to shape?

We don’t believe that lawyers who have the intellect, agility, and personality to shape a client’s future can be churned off a production line. So while other firms may have a narrow, prescriptive view of what a lawyer should be, ours is to offer you an environment that will let you make the most of your personal qualities.

The Mishcon culture


Our wide range of practice areas from Private through to Corporate gives us a broad client base and you the unique experience of working on high profile cases across the legal spectrum.


The size of our intake means that trainees are entrusted with responsibility early on. As a key member of any team your opinion counts.


Our growth over the last 5 years means that you’re part of a dynamic, forward-thinking business.


Friendly, fun and focussed, people enjoy coming to work and are proud to be part of the Mishcon team. It explains why we are the highest ranked law firm in the Sunday Times Best Companies to Work For 2015.


We always want to do things better. The recently created Mishcon Academy is our dedicated in-house place of training, development, learning and new thinking.

A conscience

How we conduct ourselves has always been as important to us as what results we achieve. We live by our values. Those who will do anything to get what they want need not apply.
