Training Contracts

As a trainee at Fladgate, you are an investment in our future.

Training at Fladgate combines a first class education programme with real hands-on experience and client contact. The nature of our business and small intake of trainees each year means you will be given exposure to high quality work with lots of responsibility from an early stage. We don’t expect you to learn by sitting on the sidelines or standing at the photocopier; you will gain first-hand experience on a variety of deals both large and small. Where possible you will be given every opportunity to develop your drafting and negotiating skills in real life situations. Our trainees have attested to this and as a result, we were winners of the “client contact” category in the 2017/2018 Lex 100 Survey.

Our two year training programme is divided into four seats of six months. Each of our trainees will complete core seats within corporate, real estate and litigation, with the fourth seat either being a repeat of an old favourite or within one of our more specialist areas. We will use our best endeavours to ensure that the fourth seat is chosen not only in response to commercial need but also personal preference. We have maintained high retention rates by offering our trainees newly qualified positions in their desired areas.
