Last updated on June 28th, 2018 at 03:44 pm

Work Experience Placements

Every year we offer three two-week summer work experience placements at The Jonathan Lea Network. We also offer one week work experience placements every Christmas and Easter (on such mutually convenient dates that are agreed with a candidate). This is an exciting opportunity for someone who is either studying or has recently completed a law degree, the GDL conversion course or the LPC to gain practical experience at a commercial law firm during the summer, from:

Monday 25th June to Friday 6th July;

Monday 23rd July to Friday 3rd August; and

Monday 20th August to Friday 31st August.

The Jonathan Lea Network is a forward thinking specialist business law practice that works primarily in conjunction with the virtual firm The London Law Practice. Turnover and profitability have grown each year since we started in 2013, primarily off the back of a powerful blog that now generates around 300,000 page views a year and more work enquiries than we can currently manage.

Our office is based in Haywards Heath, West Sussex, 10 minutes walk from the train station.

Our clients include leading technology startups, celebrities, media companies and entrepreneurs across a range of industry sectors.

Most of our clients are based in and around London, while our work is also frequently international in scope.

The experience you can expect to gain working with us will be varied and should encompasses the following:

  • mergers and acquisitions;
  • investment rounds;
  • SEIS and EIS tax reliefs;
  • joint ventures;
  • shareholder disputes and buy outs;
  • commercial agreements and terms and conditions;
  • intellectual property matters;
  • employee and consultancy agreements; and
  • company law and financial services regulation advice.
