With us, you can get the chance to experience seats across all our departments which could include Employment, Corporate, Intellectual Property, Commercial Property, Immigration, Commercial Litigation, Personal Injury, Family Law, Private Client, Rural Property and Residential Property. Whatever your career ambitions and areas of interest, we will support you throughout your Training Contract. You will work with Scottish, UK and international clients and will have client contact from the very start with the full support of your Training team behind you. It is important to us that Trainees at Thorntons feel like they have all the help they need around them.
