What you can expect

Corporate trainees contribute significantly to each stage of the transaction, from the investigative nature of due diligence, drafting board minutes, memorandum and articles of association, chasing conditions precedent, negotiating finance documents through to verification and the all-important completion meeting.

Expect peaks and troughs in workload, with the end of the financial year often proving to be a race to the end, so corporate law isn’t for the faint-hearted but will suit those with a competitive streak.
