Opportunities and Application Information

While our search for candidates is broad, our focus is narrow: hiring lawyers who thrive in a firm that emphasizes excellence and collegiality.

Cleary has developed a diverse, first-rate firm by recruiting in the UK and abroad, but without pre-conceived notions of what makes a first-rate lawyer. Instead, the common thread that ties together all our hires is talent.

Seeking Excellence and Creativity

We seek lawyers who are confident in their abilities and creative in their thinking. To find these attributes in a lawyer, we look for academically excellent candidates who are enthusiastic about practicing law in a challenging and dynamic international setting.

If you are interested in joining the London office as a qualified associate, please submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae and all undergraduate and/or postgraduate transcripts to LonLegalRecruit@cgsh.com.
