A friendly law firm

Freeths is a great place to work and learn, and we’ve got the awards to prove it. We are rated in the Top 50 of The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For and have a Silver Investors in People Award. People at every level of the firm will go out of their way to help you – your success is our success.

“One of the reasons I chose to apply to Freeths was the reputation it had as a friendly firm. I was pleasantly surprised by just how approachable and helpful everyone is.”

Serra Lee, Associate at Freeths Milton Keynes

A diverse team of people

Want to gain work experience as you complete your training course? Our Flexible Graduate Programme allows you to choose the learning route that suits you. There is no typical Freeths candidate – we have a diverse mixture of bright, stand-out trainees from law and non-law backgrounds. You can join us fresh from graduating (we do not have a “list of universities” that we pick from), or after doing your LPC or GDL.

“I started the Freeths legal assistant programme nearly 6 years ago and have never looked back! The programme was an excellent way of starting my legal career as it enabled me to adapt to the legal working environment and learn ‘on the job’ whilst fully being supported by Freeths throughout.”

Hurmus Oltan, Associate at Freeths Leicester

“Within five minutes of being introduced to the team I was knee deep the preparation of a fifty lever arch file trial bundle for a multi million pound claim in the High Court.”
