    Why choose Healys LLP?

    We are a friendly and diverse medium sized firm with am inclusive, supportive and progressive culture and offices in central London and Brighton.

    We recognise the importance of training and development for all employees throughout their career, value our trainees highly and make every effort to ensure trainees become fully integrated into the practice, both in terms of work and socially.

    As a Trainee, you will be given opportunities to work with clients, alongside our own legal experts and to develop a wide range of skills to maximise your potential. You will be given exposure to an interesting and challenging work load and to a wide variety of clients.

    We offer an exciting and comprehensive programme over two years, with a variety of seats across a varied range of our practice areas. You will experience three to four seats, usually on a six month rotation basis, with access to a mixture of contentious and non-contentious work. You will be closely supervised and mentored throughout the training period, with regular informal and more formal update and appraisal meetings. These meetings will enable you continuously to review your progress and to raise and discuss any skills you need to develop, as well as your future objectives. This will ensure you get the best out of your training and that you end the two years with a clear idea of where and how you want to specialise.
