Join our tenacious, innovative team

We look for stellar professional skills, commercial understanding and an ability to think strategically

Cooke, Young & Keidan has substantially increased in size since it was founded in January 2009. We handle an ever-widening range of commercial and financial disputes and have ambitious plans for the expansion of our business over the coming months and years.

We advertise lawyer and support roles on this page, as and when we have a vacancy. We are also happy to hear at any time from the very best business disputes lawyers who want to act on cutting-edge cases against the top law firms and who are looking to work within a collaborative and cooperative culture, with an emphasis on mutual support and teamwork.

In addition to recruiting for stellar professional skills, we also look for people with commercial understanding and an ability to think strategically; people who understand our clients’ business concerns and are able to set legal advice in this context.

Due to the firm’s exclusive focus on disputes work, we do not, at present, offer training contracts. We also regret that we are not able offer internships or vacation placements in response to applications.

We ask respectfully that recruitment agents only submit candidates’ applications where: (1) the candidate meets the criteria set out for the role; and (2) the candidate has provided express consent for the recruitment agent to approach us on their behalf. Recruitment agency terms of engagement must be expressly agreed and accepted by CYK in writing.
