Druces LLP: a dynamic, sector-focused firm
Our trainee application window is now open for training contracts in 2025 and 2026. At this time, we are open to applicants qualifying under the LPC route only.
Druces is a firm which is proud of its long history, but equally proud of the way we invest a great deal in staying relevant to our current and future client base through professional development, industry engagement and market analysis. We want to be a firm that leads the debate in our chosen sectors and, to that end, we are involved in a number of collaborations which position Druces as a thought-leader.
What are we looking for in our trainees?
We want to see bright, creative minds join our expanding team. Our firm values people skills and creativity as much as academic achievement; and trainee recruitment is an important process for the firm. We invest a lot of time and energy in the process as we are recruiting for the firm’s future, looking for dedicated and committed individuals who will contribute to our continuing success and develop rewarding careers.
What’s in it for you as a Druces trainee?
We will work with you and help you to become the most astute and commercial lawyer you can be. As part of your development, you will spend six-months in the following four practice areas.
- Real Estate
- Dispute Resolution
- Private Client
- Corporate & Commercial
Unlike larger firms, Druces provides opportunities for more hands-on experience and one-on-one attention from our partners and other senior lawyers. As a Druces trainee, you will get a first-class legal grounding and access to talented and approachable colleagues. Our trainees certainly enjoy honing their skills in the Druces environment.
Applicants must be eligible to work in the UK – unfortunately, given the size of the firm, we are currently unable to provide VISA sponsorship.
Please note that we are unable to provide funding for the LPC.
What you can expect from our trainee recruitment process
Each application will be individually reviewed by a member of our recruitment team, and we will let you know whether your application will be progressed.
Successful applicants will then go through a two-stage interview process, at which point we make our final decision.
If you have any questions surrounding Training Contracts or the application process, please contact our recruitment team at firstname.lastname@example.org
