If a legal problem does arise, it is the legal team’s job to ensure that it is resolved with the best-possible outcome for the company.
The team deals with a wide range of legal areas, including litigation, planning, property, contracts, data protection, health & safety, licensing and regulatory law. No two days are ever the same.
The team plays a key role in assisting with the expansion of the company, by obtaining the necessary planning permission, licences and permits required to enable the pubs to sell alcohol, provide entertainment and operate gaming machines.
Katie Sullivan Trainee Solicitor
The Wetherspoon culture is to promote from within the company and they really nurture and support their staff. Its so inspiring to know that a lot of senior management began their career in the pubs. The training opportunities are fantastic; last year, I was fortunate enough to achieve one of my career goals to train as a solicitor with Wetherspoon. So far, I have worked in property and commercial litigation and am looking forward to my move to licensing soon. The company is also giving me the opportunity to work in a city law firm, next year, on secondment.
