The Team

Vance Chapman, Training Principal: “We offer exceptional career opportunities through our training programme. We work with sophisticated clients on high-profile and often precedent-setting cases in which you would play an active role. The work is fast-paced, interesting and often fun.”

Emma Simmonds, Graduate Recruitment Partner: “The firm has particular skills that focus on a number of key areas including hedge funds, distressed and financial restructuring, energy and emerging markets. That tends to attract a certain type of self-starter, keen to work in a dynamic and fast-paced environment.  It won’t suit all personalities, so we’re looking for people with intellectual curiosity who are solutions-focused, who enjoy immersive learning and are after complex, international work.”

Justin Williams, Graduate Recruitment Partner: “Our trainees appreciate being part of a smaller group; they have to be independently minded and self-confident, but it also means that we have enough seats to give them a large number of options.”
