Locations

With locations across the UK, we’ve got an office in your reach (or that bit further afield). Wherever you pick, you’ll be part of defining what law will look like next.

Training Contract Locations

Our trainees in the UK can be based in Edinburgh, Glasgow, London or Milton Keynes. Read below for more details on each office, and the work our trainees can get involved in.

Edinburgh

With a legacy in Scotland dating back to 1871, we are committed to the market and deeply rooted in the community. Our lawyers are intimately familiar with the nuances of doing business in Scotland, and can help you get things done quickly and effectively.

Edinburgh is a fast paced hub, with clients instructing us on local, national and internal work.

Our Edinburgh office is situated on the edge of the Meadows within the Quartermile development with views over Edinburgh Castle and the Pentland Hills. It is a short walk from both Waverley and Haymarket stations.

Training in Edinburgh

Each year we take on around 10 trainees onto our Central Belt Traineeship, which involves rotating between Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Trainees in our Edinburgh office have the opportunity to complete seats in all our key UK practice areas, alongside client and international secondments.

“For me it was clear from when I applied to Dentons that Scotland wasn’t an afterthought, but a core part of the firm’s business.A lot of really exciting work happens up here and in my experience it’s been great to work on transactions that impact the place I grew up in so there is a tangible link to the work I’m doing. In terms of the Edinburgh office itself, I love that everyone is so welcoming. Everyone I’ve met, from trainee to partner, has made an effort to introduce themselves which is a lovely touch as a new trainee.”

Glasgow

With a legacy in Scotland dating back to 1871, we are committed to the market and deeply rooted in the community. Our lawyers are intimately familiar with the nuances of doing business in Scotland, and can help you get things done quickly and effectively.

As Scotland’s largest city, Glasgow is a thriving economic hub home to businesses across a range of industries.

In coordination with our Edinburgh and Aberdeen offices, our Glasgow office services businesses based in the city, those based in the surrounding areas, and the many national and international companies doing business in the region.

Situated in the city’s cultural and commercial centre adjacent to the City Chambers, the Glasgow office is within a five minute walk of Queen Street train station and less than a 10 minute walk from Glasgow Central train station.

Training in Glasgow

Each year we take on around 10 trainees onto our Central Belt Traineeship, which involves rotating between Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Trainees in our Glasgow office have the opportunity to complete seats in all our key UK practice areas, alongside client and international secondments.

“I chose to join Dentons in Scotland because I wanted to be part of our Scottish heritage and expertise, alongside access to international work and colleagues. The Glasgow office is open plan, and everyone is approachable and friendly. Because of the office size I have got to know almost everyone in the office, and love being involved in our local pro bono and CSR initiatives.”

London

London is our largest UK office, and is based in the heart of The City. Our market-leading teams advise the world’s leading international and domestic corporations, financial institutions, governments, public sector groups and NGOs.

We are also dedicated to our local communities in London, and frequently give back via our legal advice clinics, local homeless shelters and school initiatives.

Training in London

Each year we take on around 20 trainees and 4 apprentices into our London office.

Trainees and apprentices in London have the opportunity to complete seats in all our key UK practice areas, alongside client and international secondments.

“I chose to join Dentons London to be at the heart of the excitement of the city. I also wanted access to supervisors and mentors at the top of their field. I love that we are a stone’s throw away from amazing restaurants, theatres and history – you can see St Pauls and the Shard from some of the windows!”

Milton Keynes

We are proud to be part of the business community in Milton Keynes. For more than 25 years, the firm has been committed to Milton Keynes, recently rated the best place to do business in the UK by the Business Location Index.

Historically, our lawyers helped to advise on the development and construction of Milton Keynes as a new town. Today, we also provide pragmatic, strategic advice to local, national and international clients.

Training in Milton Keynes

Each year we take on around 5 trainees and 1-2 apprentices into our Milton Keynes office.

Trainees and apprentices in our Milton Keynes office have the opportunity to complete seats in all our key UK practice areas, alongside client and international secondments.

“I chose to join the Dentons MK office as I wanted exposure to City clients without having to live the City lifestyle every day. I love that the MK office is only half an hour by train to London, which makes it easy to go into London when I need or want to. The open-plan office creates such a friendly and inclusive atmosphere. Also, there are only two floors, so everyone knows everyone!”
