You may be offered the opportunity to spend six months on international secondment to the Tokyo office through our UK and Australian traineeship programmes.

During these training contracts, you’ll gain an outstanding breadth of experience and an unparalleled opportunity to develop skills across a range of practice areas. You’ll rotate around seats of six months each in London or Australia, and potentially six months in Tokyo.

Your time in the London or Australia offices will be in one of our four main divisions, after which you may join us in the Tokyo office to complete a seat in either our dispute resolution or corporate practice. Upon qualification, you’ll be able to apply to join the Tokyo office as a newly qualified associate. You can also apply for a role in the Tokyo office upon qualification, even if you have not undertaken a seat in the office during your London training contract or Australian graduate programme.

For further information and to apply, please refer to the London and Australian programme pages. If your application is successful, you’ll be interviewed by partners in London/Australia and Tokyo to determine your suitability.
