Wragge and Co Insight Event

Wragge & Co – Open Evening

You want to get experienced, not just qualified. And you don’t want to be turned into someone you’re not. Our training contracts have one simple aim: to help you become the lawyer you want to be. We don’t mass produce lawyers here at Wragge & Co. We tailor our training contracts to you. We’ll give you early responsibility and big ticket work for household name clients, and we’ll make sure you’ll qualify with the legal toolkit you need to be a brilliant lawyer.

Working from London or Birmingham on high profile national and international instructions, our trainees are part of a team passionate about providing the very best client service. A full-service law firm, our core work areas include corporate, dispute resolution, real estate, banking & finance, employment, pensions, tax, EU law and antitrust, public law and regulatory, corporate recovery and insolvency, intellectual property, IT, projects, outsourcing and general commercial. Sector-focused, it brings together dedicated teams of experts in a wide range of industries including aerospace, technology, energy, food and drink, healthcare, life sciences, public sector and retail.

Sound appealing?
