We work with one another, never against.
We are a firm of team players and collaborators, making sure that everyone has the support from us, and from each other, to become some of the best advisors in the market. We are a firm of growth and innovation, who are intellectually and creatively driven and at the forefront of the action.
Be in the action.
Whether we are closing a multibillion-pound deal, saving a business close to insolvency or resolving a highly complex dispute, it is all hands on deck.
We have an enviable catalogue of high profile clients – some that you have heard of before, others you will in the future. The work is varied, exciting and from the very start, you will be in the spotlight - tackling the problems our clients face.
Be known by name.
Being a close-knit firm is something we pride ourselves on. We take pride in our dedication to creating a sense of solidarity, building a culture where peers help one another, create bonds and motivate each other to excel. Your supervisors, colleagues and partners will know you by name, and your hard work will not go unnoticed.
Simply put, you will enjoy working here – even when the going gets tough.
Be in the fast lane.
We encourage you to achieve more, faster, by giving you constant exposure to the very highest calibre of work, while at the same time ensuring that you are given personal mentoring and support. The trust we have in our trainees, their capabilities and their curiosity is pivotal to their success, and we know that a good idea can come from anyone. We create opportunities, but it is your initiative and proactive attitude that counts.
Be acknowledged and empowered.
People are forever growing both in their skills and their personalities, values, outlooks and interests; we strive to support your growth with a variety of informal initiatives and programmes that you can take part in. You will be celebrated for your individuality, empowered and invested in — not just as a lawyer, but as a whole person. We cultivate knowledge in areas outside of our sphere that will strengthen your worldview and in turn, the firm’s.
Meet our Trainee Associates
“I wanted to have a purpose in the most exciting deals and transactions, and Weil have created an environment where I can do just that.”
“The people at Weil are great at giving praise and acknowledging your efforts. We work really hard and we take on a lot, so it’s amazing that we’re appreciated for it.”
“It was important to me to join a firm where I could gain responsibility early on, even on my vacation scheme I was given real work to do. You are surrounded by the best.”
"The most helpful thing for me is the informal support network. You really do have an atmosphere where you can pop your head round the door or pick up the phone and have a chat with anyone if you need help."
“I have worked in many offices, in many different countries, but I have never worked anywhere that does pro bono on this scale.”
