“Our entrants start their experience with a Trainee Conference where they have the opportunity to meet counterparts from other Pinsent Masons offices. As well as properly structured legal training, we also provide broader skills training such as networking and client engagement. The programme is supported by a dedicated team ensuring that our people get the best out of the experience of training with us.
