Australian Training Contract Program

Choosing where to start your legal career is an important decision – for you and for us.

At our firm, we strive to be a dynamic and inclusive workplace, promoting a productive and supportive culture. We value enthusiasm, collaboration, creativity and commercialism, and individuals who demonstrate those attributes will thrive in our culture and contribute to our continued growth and success.

As a graduate in our Australian offices, you will be part of a program where you will…

Be Connected

We describe ourselves as one office, many locations, and that pretty much sums up our approach. Many of our clients work across countries and continents, and expect us to do the same.

You will be working alongside lawyers across the country and all around the world.

“I’ve just graduated, and already I’m working on deals with people in London, Tokyo, Sydney and Perth. I’ve even travelled overseas to work closely with our international clients.”
Michael Van Der Ende | Perth | Energy & Resources

Be Commercial

Whether they are household brand names that have changed the way we work, live, shop or play, or start-ups just about to shake things up all over again, our clients are clever, creative and commercial. So are we.

You will learn how to adapt what you have learned about law to real-time scenarios. That is because you will be working on real work for real clients from day one.

“It’s fantastic to be involved in deals that are reshaping the landscape of Perth.”
Tim O’Shannassy | Perth | International Dispute Resolution

“The firm’s fast-paced but supportive environment has rapidly developed my legal skills and professional relationships.”
Chris Steenson | Corporate | Sydney

“I am forever undertaking new tasks and learning new skills in an incredibly supportive team. I’ve just been given the opportunity of a six month rotation to the Financial Services team in Sydney.”
Sarah Tonkin | Perth/Sydney | Corporate & Financial Services

Be Committed

Our culture emphasises and rewards collaboration, accountability and responsibility. We support our clients, our people and our community. Values are not just words on a page but are lived daily. We have generous wellbeing programs to keep you happy and healthy in mind and in body. We support volunteerism and pro bono initiatives. We work hard to build a culture that makes coming to work each day a pleasure.

From the very start, you will be provided with the tools, know-how and options you need to set your own challenges and define your career path.

“The culture encourages curiosity and collaboration.”
William He | Sydney | Corporate

“It gave me the confidence to develop strong relationships with clients.”
Tim O’Shannassy | Perth | Real Estate

“I am forever undertaking new tasks and learning new skills in an incredibly supportive team. I’ve just been given the opportunity of a six month rotation to the Financial Services team in Sydney.”
