Your career with us
Over the last few years, our team has grown by over 70%. This is just the start of the journey with us. As our firm grows, so too do our staff. Professional and non-professional staff are supported and encouraged to be the best they can be and to grow and develop within their role.
We know there's a big difference between studying law and practising law. That's why our summer law programme is designed to give you a taste of what it's like to work as a lawyer. Our law students have found that their experience with us gave them a distinct advantage in their final year at university.
Summer Law Experiences
Here's what some of our recent summer laws clerks had to say about their summer law experience with us:
"My experience at Anthony Harper was hugely rewarding. I was immersed in a wide range of meaningful tasks from day one. Not once was I delegated a task where the overarching context of the agreement or transaction was not explained. This made my summer with Anthony Harper very hands-on, and will enable me to go back to my final year of study with a broad understanding of how legal theory can apply to practicing in corporate law. The summer clerk programme was hugely flexible. Although my supervising partners were in Corporate Advisory and Banking and Finance, I was able to undergo work from a variety of teams within the firm. This made the clerkship more personable and allowed me to experience several sectors within a commercial law environment. I was able to spend a lot more time with my supervising partners than expected. This enabled me to learn from the best, and see first hand how commercial law partners operate on a day-to-day basis. My biggest highlight at Anthony Harper was the amazing team environment. Every faction of the firm was welcoming, supportive and friendly throughout the summer."
"The extremely welcoming nature of everyone involved in the firm, and the collegiality that they exhibited instantly made me feel at home. From the get go I was involved in all aspects of the firm and spent my first morning in court with my supervising partner. It is particularly rewarding looking back at how far I have come since my first day, when even simple tasks that seemed relatively simple on the face of it required multiple attempts to get right."
