Above + Beyond

“Being a trainee at Raees + Co was a one of kind experience. The team is welcoming, friendly and most of all serious about getting the best out of a trainee lawyer. I can say with certainty that I would not have been the lawyer I am today had I joined any other training program. The firm and the team will always be a part of me.”

Faisal Abdul Ghaffar,
Former Trainee at Raees + Co


As a part of our Aspire+ Program, we recruit 4 trainees split between two-month periods of July-August and September-October each year.


Although our trainees come from varied backgrounds and experiences, they all share a desire to be part of a strong team, learn about the industry and juggle early responsibility. We believe that the caliber of the people we recruit, and the platform of training we provide, are fundamental to our success. Our holistically designed program includes:

  • An introduction to the legal industry and to Raees + Co
  • Professional skills training
  • Courtroom experience
  • Insightful Interactions with senior partners
  • Peer mentoring opportunities


We are looking for people who want to shape the future and cultivate a career that counts. If you are ready to go above + beyond, we want to hear from you.
