Sullivan & Cromwell provides the highest quality legal advice and representation to clients around the world. The results we achieve have set us apart for more than 130 years and serve as a model for the modern practice of law.
At Sullivan & Cromwell, there is no such thing as second best. Meritocracy, responsibility and opportunity foster the success of each new employee.
If you are interested in working with the world’s leading companies on their most challenging matters and believe that you have the qualities for which we are looking, we encourage you to apply for a training contract with us.
Our success is the result of the quality of our lawyers, who are broadly and deeply trained. Since Sullivan & Cromwell was first founded, our approach has been to recruit the very best US law school graduates and train them to be all-round “generalist” business lawyers within broad practice areas. We promote lawyers to partner almost entirely from among our own associates. The result is a partnership with a unique diversity of experience, exceptional professional judgement and a demonstrated history of innovation. We replicate this model in London. In September 2013, the first trainee solicitors in the Firm’s history joined our London office. By recruiting the very best law and non-law students and graduates to train as solicitors, we aim to continue the organic growth of our London office and our English and EU law practices. We expect our trainees to continue their careers with us, and to serve as future leaders of the Firm.

Sullivan & Cromwell’s English law practices comprises over 35 lawyers and trainee solicitors, who between them studied at over two dozen universities. We would welcome the opportunity to meet and discuss opportunities with Sullivan & Cromwell with prospective trainee solicitors.
