Life at Freshfields

Your chance to join a world-class organisation

The sheer size and heft of our clients – and the sheer scale of the work we do for them – demand the very best talent. Our people reflect this.

We support the world’s leading national and multinational corporations and financial institutions across a wide range of transactional, risk and advisory work. Our UK-based people are fully integrated with colleagues around the globe, so provide the best legal advice and service to our clients, wherever and whenever required.


The heart of our global network

London is one of the most exciting cities on the planet.

The city is also arguably the world’s greatest financial centre: all of the leading global financial institutions have a significant presence here. It’s also home to the headquarters of more than 100 of Europe’s largest companies.

Our London team is the one the world’s leading businesses turn to for help with their most challenging problems. They work with colleagues around the world on complex, cross-border deals and disputes.

Whether you join as a lawyer, a recent graduate or in a business services role, London is a great place to work.

You will work on challenging, engaging tasks that will give you the opportunity to make your mark and progress your career. We believe there is no better place to work.


The place for vital support services

Freshfields wants to be the law firm that clients turn to for help on crucial legal and commercial issues, wherever in the world they may be.

We aim to deliver seamless service across borders, cultures and languages, and Freshfields' Global Centre in Manchester is central to this vision.

The Centre provides both legal support and business services to our lawyers and their clients around the clock and around the world.
