No matter how good a lawyer you are, it’s all too easy to find yourself pigeonholed. But at Ince & Co, we believe in giving talented people the chance to shine.
We don't have a rigid departmental structure here, instead we have five core business groups: aviation, energy and offshore, insurance and reinsurance, international trade, and shipping. This means that our Lawyers aren’t restricted to one department; we encourage people to take on a variety of work across our business groups.
What we look for
Legal talent is obviously important to us, but we also look for people who will fit in with our culture. We’re a friendly open firm and we’re always on the lookout for people who share our principles. Honesty and integrity are paramount for an Ince Lawyer.
We look for intellectually skilled Solicitors who have a genuine passion for our key business groups; be it shipping, aviation, energy, insurance, or international trade. Our Lawyers aren’t just sector experts though, they’re also leaders in their fields. We pride ourselves on providing our clients with innovative solutions to complex problems.
We don’t just operate on a billable targets system, so it will be your contribution that’s measured, not solely your time. We’re a firm that prefers its people to enjoy a healthy work/life balance.
Learning and Development
Learning & Development at Ince is fundamental to ensure that we are the global law firm of choice in our specialist sectors; Shipping, Insurance, Energy & Offshore, International Trade, and Aviation.
Our non-departmental structure means that solicitors are not allocated to a particular Group until 1 PQE, so we call these first three years the ‘Foundation Years’. Trainees and NQs undertake a comprehensive and structured training programme during this time. Lectures and workshops cover contract law, each of our sector areas, and various practice skills. These sessions are typically delivered by our associates and partners, passing on their expertise, which is increasingly rare in big firms nowadays.
Associate Development and Career Path
We have a clear, published career development paths for all our fee earners. This is supported by Group and practice-specific CPD sessions throughout the year, as well as an Associate Development Programme which covers commercial and legal knowledge and skills, communication and networks.
The most important learning for fee earners, however, is on the job itself. Our open and supportive culture aims to share and pass down our vast bank of knowledge and experience through conversation and feedback. It is no coincidence that 85% of our partners were once themselves trainees at the firm. We also have a dedicated mentor scheme which helps provide guidance and support.
