Why Bristows?

We could just be your perfect match: for the topics that engage you, the values that make you, the possibilities that inspire you and the career you were born for.

We're medium-sized, but we handle the types of work you’d normally associate with the very largest firms. It’s a perfect scale for a trainee: you’ll get to work alongside our partners dealing directly with clients right from the start. You’ll get plenty of freedom and responsibility, with plenty of encouragement and all the friendly support you need. 

We’ve been going for 185 years and today have a client list that includes leading businesses from some of the most dynamic sectors, including tech, life sciences and brands. It means you’ll get to work with ambitious clients ranging from fast-growing start-ups and medium sized enterprises to global corporations, financial institutions and high-profile charities. 

We often advise on issues that shape entire industries, and which a company's future might depend on – such as whether or not a business can launch a new product or buy a rival business. 

We know our reputation is down to the people that make up Bristows, so we make no compromise in seeking out the most talented people and doing all we can to make sure they enjoy life here. We’re particularly proud to have one of the highest employee retention rates in the City, and we expect to offer jobs to all our trainees at the end of their training contracts.
