Guaranteed Overseas Seat

While some firms still struggle with the concept of working on a worldwide scale, it’s second nature at White & Case.

We are widely recognised as a leading emerging markets Firm, most of our clients are multinational and almost all the matters you will work on will include more than one jurisdiction.

In recognition of the international nature of our clients' business, we guarantee a six-month London seat for all trainees coming into our Hong Kong office. You will also be given the option to spend time in our Beijing office.

Working abroad provides an often life-changing experience wherever you go, building friendships and contacts that often last your entire career.

In summary:

  • Your accommodation will be paid for while you are on secondment.
  • You will receive a cost of living allowance while you are abroad.

While you are abroad, you will continue to benefit from your personalised training. You will become part of the local team, and a supervisor will be appointed to ensure you get the most out of your time there.

The close relationship between people has helped me along my learning path from the very first day.
