Support and balance
The firm believes in making sure that everyone counts, and organises itself accordingly. They believe that lawyers are better at handling the intense pace and pressure of work if they are part of a supportive team. They have a friendly and relaxed atmosphere which comes from having a diverse range of individuals who share a strong set of common values.
The firm also recognizes the importance of ensuring that people are able to keep their lives in balance, and therefore encourage a range of sporting, cultural and social activities, as well as participation in it's award-winning corporate social responsibility programme.
There is no such thing as a ‘typical’ Freshfields lawyer.
The firm's broad array of practice areas and clients demands a wide range of individuals with differing skills, abilities and interests. However, you’ll need strong academic qualifications (the ability to achieve a high 2.1 or first at degree level), a broad range of skills and a good record of achievement in other areas.
