Field Fisher Waterhouse LLP is a full-service European law firm with offices in Brussels, Hamburg, Munich, Dusseldorf, Paris, Manchester and London. With more than 140 partners and more than 250 other lawyers, we assist a wide range of international clients, advising across the full range of legal issues. Our main areas of practice are corporate, IP and technology, and regulatory. We also have particular expertise in competition and EU law, real estate, banking and finance, dispute resolution, employment, pensions and tax.

We have great clients, great matters to work on and are recognised as leaders in our field, but it’s our people and their dedication and hard work that makes this happen. Supporting them with good systems and processes, having a strong teamwork ethic and creating an empowering and inspiring environment to enable them to grow in their roles is what’s really important to us.

The people we’re looking for need to be bright, ambitious and very commercial, but in our opinion it’s your ability to communicate, your experiences and attitude, that really makes the difference and that is what we believe makes a great lawyer. We don’t want another generation of legal clones, we’re looking for well-rounded individuals because who you are as a person and what else you have achieved is just as important to us.
