We have a strong team of professionals working in other legal roles for areas such as Listings, Company Secretarial and Legal Tech and Innovations Services. Our employees working in these areas have previously worked in compliance, funds, financial regulation and consultancy services.
Corporate Graduate Administration programme
Our Corporate Administration Graduate Programme is a new hiring programme which will be of interest to graduates seeking opportunities in service areas that are adjunct to our legal practice, such as listings, corporate secretarial, discovery and data management. It is ideal for graduates who wish to work in a legal environment and who have completed degree courses involving an exposure to the study of law and/or corporate governance/administration but who are not currently seeking to pursue careers as lawyers.
