"Ashurst Advance has allowed me to grow my career as a young legal professional in the exciting NewLaw space. That career journey began as a Legal Analyst where I learned from lawyers across the firm's different practice areas. I have since moved into the Legal Technology space where I use innovative digital solutions to help our clients meet their objectives. The focus on professional growth, and the supportive and innovative culture is why I chose to build my career with Ashurst Advance."

After 6 and a half years and 4 different roles within the division, I have found a position that is not only the right one for me, but one where I am empowered to bring my expertise to the table to deliver the best solutions for our clients. The encouragement and support I have received from colleagues and leaders within Ashurst Advance, as well as the time I have been able to dedicate to learning and development, has been invaluable in helping me navigate the right career path for me.
