Of course clients expect their lawyers to understand the law. But what they really want is advice from smart people who get the commercial context and can spot the business implications. On this measure, you won’t find better than RPC; in 2015 the UK's leading client satisfaction report placed us in the top spot overall out of 383 firms benchmarked, and ranked us number one for quality of commercial advice. Not for the first time.
Combining this commercial outlook with some of the leading lawyers in their fields and great clients, we offer a depth of knowledge and creative approach to problem solving that few firms can rival. It's no surprise, then, that we're regularly praised in the leading directories for the quality of our training programmes.
We're intent on rewriting the rules. If you have courage and a pioneering spirit, we'd love to hear from you.
We run summer vacation schemes each year in our London office to enable prospective trainees to spend time with us, getting a feel for the work we do and the unique RPC atmosphere. Twelve students at a time spend two weeks with us experiencing the real working life of RPC, giving you a fantastic insight into whether a career here is right for you.
During the scheme we expose you to the business side of being a lawyer, including finding out about the importance of marketing and business development and involving you in a 'real-time' business project.
We also run an Open Day programme for high quality candidates who don't initially manage to land a place on the summer scheme itself. The Open Day gives a great snapshot of the firm. The day is packed full of activities, including handling work in two different departments, listening to presentations, taking part in skills workshops and attending networking events.
