Clyde & Co
Clyde & Co is a leading, sector-focused global law firm with 440 partners, 1800 lawyers, 2500 legal professionals and over 4000 staff in over 50 offices and associated offices worldwide. The firm specialises in the sectors that move, build and power our connected world and the insurance that underpins it, namely: transport, infrastructure, energy, trade & commodities, and insurance.
With a strong focus on developed and emerging markets, the firm has achieved compound average annual revenue growth of 15% over the last ten years, making it one of the fastest growing law firms in the world with ambitious plans for further growth. This can be seen through the addition of five new offices this year in; Munich, Vancouver, Phoenix, Denver, and Las Vegas. Against a backdrop of continued volatility in our core sectors, these results demonstrate the resilience of our business and its balance across sectors and geographies.
The firm is looking for candidates who combine an excellent academic track record with strong commercial acumen and a practical approach to problem-solving. We therefore look for those with ambition, independent thinking, curiosity, and commitment, honed with the ability. Trainees need to communicate effectively and build relationships with both clients and colleagues.
We view diversity and inclusion as critical to the international nature of our business and have created a working environment where people from different backgrounds can flourish.
We try incorporating this diverse reach through our recruitment practices and are proud to say we use Rare Contextual Recruitment to capture a student or graduates’ performance in the context of their circumstances. This is furthered in the programmes we offer, such as ‘Bright Futures’ a nine month programme aimed at first year law and second year non law students from lower socioeconomic backgrounds.
We also run a number of vacation schemes in our London and Manchester offices each year, during which students join us for two weeks and learn about the firm and how the law is applied to our core sectors.– and insight days during which students join us to gain insight into the culture and work of the firm.
