Freshfields hub: re-imagining law
Our clients’ needs are becoming more complex. Mass claims, global investigations and cross-border M&A demand sophisticated legal judgement and involve huge volumes of data. The Freshfields Hub is part of our connected innovation: the combined power of people, processes and tech.
The Hub brings together lawyers, technologists, legal support staff and process improvement specialists. Together, we design more agile and efficient ways to deliver our legal services, ensuring that our clients – and you – stay ahead of the curve.
The Freshfields Hub also offers alternative careers in law, including working with cutting-edge legal technology.
Hub legal solutions specialist
Each year our Manchester Hub takes on between 10 and 20 LPC graduates with an interest in legal technology, as an alternative to our London-based trainee associate programme.
As a legal solutions specialist (LSS), you’ll be helping the world’s biggest businesses solve their most challenging problems while working in a diverse and responsible firm.
You’ll be working hand-in-hand with lawyers around our network, forming part of the broader teams servicing our clients. That doesn’t mean just locally supporting our lawyers on routine admin and filing; as an LSS you’re given real responsibility. The Hub also has specialist roles in technology, product development and quality assurance.
Legal solutions specialist
With locations throughout Europe and Asia, the Hub operates across time zones and in more than 30 languages. A focus on innovation and continuous improvement keeps the firm and our clients ahead of the curve, and gives our LSSs the foundations of a future-looking alternative career in law.
As a Freshfields LSS, you'll learn from the best lawyers and could be:
- advising the world’s biggest businesses;
- seconded abroad or to a client;
- using cutting-edge technology, including AI; and
- building high-value specialisms.
