Trainees make a difference from day one

You will be involved in quality work right from the outset working alongside lawyers in the team. We like our trainees to get their hands in the machinery of the law through exposure to live matters, to work as part of the team and to be involved from start to finish.


All the support you need to be your best

One advantage of a collaborative environment is in the mix of formal and informal support.Howes Percival support is always there through your training principal and assistant training principal, your supervisors, other trainees and all the members of the team.
