Practice Training Contracts & Relevant Legal Training
We are looking for bright, motivated, dynamic and committed individuals who are team players.
As our corporation can only be as good as its lawyers and staff, we take training seriously and only offer training contracts to suitable individuals with the intent of retaining every suitable trainee as an Associate in our corporation once that trainee has been admitted to the Singapore Bar.
Our Objectives and Aspirations in relation to Practice Training Contracts
Our objective is to provide comprehensive and practical training to all trainees. We offer training in a broad spectrum of all areas of legal work which are undertaken by our corporation.
During the course of the training period, we hope to impart essential skills in the various areas of the law and practice to the trainees. With numerous experienced law practitioners in our corporation, you can expect to work in a dynamic and continuously developing legal environment.
As we are a medium-sized corporation, we believe that our relationship with our trainees is likely to be more interactive and personal. In addition, we have a friendly and pleasant working environment between our lawyers and staff.
During the course of the training period, the trainees can expect to be exposed to 2 or more of the areas of practice in our corporation.
Each trainee will be supervised by a Supervising Solicitor.
The Supervising Solicitors in our corporation are senior lawyers who have a wealth of experience and expertise.
Honorarium and Benefits
The trainees are given a competitive monthly honorarium, which is in line with market rates.
Our current policy is to have Saturdays off and “dress-down” Fridays. We usually have an annual dinner & dance as well as various social events during the course of the calendar year to enable lawyers and staff to socialise and interact.
Upon retention, new lawyers can expect to receive a starting salary, in-line with market rates.
