A Global career

Completing a training contract at HFW is your passport to becoming a truly global lawyer

As a Trainee, almost all of the matters that you work on will have an international dimension. Added to this is our commitment to providing each and every one of our Trainees with the opportunity to experience our international network first-hand.

All of our Trainees complete one of their seats in one of our international offices, learning about the global aspect of our work. Working abroad also provides our Trainees with the opportunity to meet and work alongside our international clients. Recently, Trainees have completed seats in Geneva, Piraeus, Paris, Dubai, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore, Melbourne and Perth.

Many of our Trainees choose to move abroad on qualification – in the last 2 years, NQs have relocated to a number of our international offices including Geneva, Singapore, Piraeus, Dubai and Hong Kong. This global perspective is nurtured throughout your career with our Associates spending time in international locations on secondment and making regular international business trips post- qualification. Indeed, the vast majority of our senior Partners have spent time working overseas during their careers, illustrating the international nature of a career with us.
