Unlike many law firms, at FIN & LAW don’t believe in making graduates work as trainee or associate level for many years before considering promotions. Our career path has a more structured approach with clearly defined roles and job levels. It’s a merit-based approach, transparency and objective. We recognise that to succeed in a law firm a lawyer needs not only excellent legal and technical ability but also a wide range of business, leadership and management skills. That’s why we’ve introduced a competency framework to set out the firm’s expectations at the various levels. Throughout your career at FIN & LAW, you’ll be assessed on core competencies appropriate to your level. As with the promotion from trainee to associate, each stage of your development should be a natural progression and challenge you appropriately. Crucially, the more you put in, the more you’ll get out. In addition to lawyers, our law firm employ non-lawyers and staff such as accountants, paralegals and secretaries to support the firm's legal and business functions.
