There are many big private companies who will employ their own in-house legal department. In big businesses, it can be more cost-efficient to have their own legal team on-hand for legal matters, rather than employing an outside solicitors firm.

Companies that are likely to have their own in-house legal departments are:

  • Banks and building societies
  • Property companies
  • Licensed conveyancers
  • Charities

Training contracts and other legal service opportunities can be available within in-house legal departments of large private sector companies. These roles would be more specific to the employer, in that legal executives or solicitors would be advising their employer on relevant issues faced by them.
