Spotlight

You can read insights and tips from our current trainees here.

PDT Solicitors is a legal 500 listed corporate law firm specialising in Corporate, Real Estate, Litigation and Employment law.

As a trainee we offer you something different from your traditional law firm. Due to the size of the firm we are large enough to give you access to large national and international clients from a broad range of sectors yet small enough to provide an environment where, given the right training and support, you can get hands on experience, build genuine relationships with clients and make a tangible difference to businesses locally and across the UK.

We view our trainees as valuable assets to the firm and in return for your hard work, we offer you the opportunity to get broad, multi-discipline commercial experience with direct access to clients and exposure to the commercial side of business.

We will welcome you into a non-competitive, non-hierarchical atmosphere where you can develop and nurture your understanding of the law, be yourself, work hard and be a valued part of a supportive, inclusive and collaborative team.

The training programme will help you to decide which area to specialise in, preparing you to be a confident, effective solicitor at qualification. A number of our partners started their careers at PDT and it is our ultimate aim that at the end of your training contract you will continue to develop your career as an important part of the PDT team.

We recruit internally and also welcome applications from motivated LPC graduates from all backgrounds.  Good communication, positivity and enthusiasm, a commercial outlook and adaptability are skills we look to recruit.
