Established over 180 years ago, we've built up a client list including leading businesses from a variety of sectors. Our clients range from fast-growing start-ups and medium sized enterprises to global corporations, financial institutions and high-profile charities.
Working with so many ambitious organisations, we often advise on issues that shape entire industries which a company's future might depend on - from advising on whether the business is entitled to launch a new product or assisting a client to buy a rival business.
We recognise that our reputation as a leading city law firm is entirely down to the individuals who work here, so we place great stock in attracting talented people and doing all we can to make sure they enjoy life at Bristows. We are particularly proud of the fact that our firm has one of the highest employee retention rates in the City, and we aim to offer jobs to all of our trainees at the end of their training contracts.
Our size makes this an ideal environment for trainees. As part of a small intake, our trainees work alongside our partners dealing directly with clients right from the start. There's plenty of responsibility, matched by an extremely supportive and friendly culture so you're never far from encouragement and advice when you need it.
