Wright Hassall is a full service commercial law firm; our client base is diverse and varied in terms of the organisations we work with (OMBs, SMEs, charities and corporates) and the industries we serve (agriculture, charities, housing, advanced manufacturing, lenders and TMT, to name but a few).  We are proud that our client base rivals that of City or global firms which provides our people with significant opportunities to work on varied, complex and interesting matters.
"To be recommended by every client, every time"

The firm is both Lexcel and Investors in People accredited and recognised in Legal 500 and Chambers UK for the quality and depth of the services which we offer.

Employment opportunities are becoming available periodically to support our ambitious growth plans. It’s an exciting time to join.

    Trainee contracts

    Whether you have a law degree or not, you can have a future in the law. Many great lawyers didn't start their academic life in the law; sometimes great lawyers come to us from other professions, deciding to retrain later in life; other times law students join us who have known that they have wanted a career in the law for many years.

    To apply or for more details please see our trainee recruitment page. 

    Work experience

    Our work experience is understandably very popular and we receive far more requests than the number of places we can offer.

    To secure one of our work experience places we expect you to be hard working, enthusiastic, have a strong desire to learn and demonstrate your skills, and most importantly have a real desire to pursue a career in law.
