Like you, we take opportunities when they arise. It's this enterprising attitude that's led us to set up and grow offices in four distinct markets. It's helped us to build an energetic, diverse, and collegial partnership. And it's what's attracted enterprising people and organisations to work with us ... time after time.

Every year we welcome graduates into our national programme designed to ensure you get maximum support and exposure to a wide variety of work. You can expect to be involved in client work from day one, included within our specialised teams of solicitors, associates and partners all working together to achieve the best outcome for our clients. You'll receive plenty of support and guidance from our senior staff. Not only will we be eager to hear your new ideas, but we'll also look forward to learning about the latest research and technologies you have developed during your time at university.

We put a lot of time and thought into making Duncan Cotterill a great place to work - a place that rewards excellence and, at the same time, recognises and encourages individuality. Our graduates are encouraged to get involved in firm social events alongside partners and colleagues at all levels.
