Intermediate Legal Administration Apprenticeship - Humphries Kerstetter (London)

Humphries Kerstetter
This is an exciting opportunity to join a friendly and forward thinking firm, giving the opportunity to develop in the role and start a business/legal career, following successful completion of the apprenticeship.

Humphries Kerstetter - Employer

HK LLP was founded in 2009 by Mark Humphries, who is widely regarded as one of the best known commercial litigators in the City of London. The partners all worked at leading international law firms, with whom the firm has close referral relationships.

The firm is highly regarded in the City and regularly receives accolades and awards. It has been nominated as Boutique Firm of the Year for the last three years in industry awards. It prides itself on being able to take on and win the most difficult and expensive cases, by outsmarting far larger firms in David v Goliath cases.

It is a close-knit, hands on practice, where staff from all levels have to roll up their sleeves and attend to the job in hand. The firm has not until this year employed any support staff but the realities of a growing practice and the nature of the work we do means the fee earners are looking for assistance and support in the administration of their cases and the firm as a whole. There is excellent scope to grow the role and have a long term career with a refreshingly different and entrepreneurial law firm.



18 - 21 months

This position is now closed and no additional applications are being taken. If you have any questions please contact the provider who is managing the position.
