China/Hong Kong: Graduates


We offer our trainee solicitors broad-based training in a fast-moving and challenging environment.

The work we do is both high quality and highly demanding. Our clients work at the cutting-edge of their industry sectors and we expect our lawyers to think creatively in response to the challenges that this brings.

Our trainees take on responsibility from day one and enjoy varied and challenging work for industry-shaping clients. If you become a trainee with us, you will be given the chance to excel. Although the work you will do will be hard, we take pride in the knowledge that our environment is genuinely friendly and stimulating.

We recognise that our lawyers are our most important asset and we recruit strong graduates capable of developing expert legal skills and commercial acumen. A certain level of intelligence and common sense is a prerequisite, but more importantly we look for well-rounded individuals who will fit in well.

Our trainee solicitors are outgoing, articulate team-players, willing to work hard when called upon and genuinely interested in progressing their careers. We aim to recruit people who will stay with the firm and therefore seek candidates who have a long-term interest in Bird & Bird and the sectors and areas of legal practice we focus on.

If you are interested in joining Bird & Bird's Hong Kong office, we offer opportunities for Training Contracts for year 2017, 2018 and 2019.
