We have a number of paralegals on permanent, fixed-term and temporary contracts in various practice areas across the firm.

Our paralegals provide valuable support to our partners, solicitors and professional support lawyers. They play an integrated role in our practice groups, carrying out a wide range of responsibilities often with direct partner contact.

Some of our paralegals begin this role with the hope of gaining relevant experience prior to applying for a training contract. If a paralegal wishes to apply for a training contract within the firm, they must have been with Macfarlanes for at least six months and have the backing of two partners.

"I like the variety of work that I get involved with. The work is also challenging, so I am constantly learning. I think this is a great reflection of the level of work that Macfarlanes gives to paralegals and trainees, it is a lot of actual legal work rather than just team administration."
