I’ve rotated across three different teams so far and have had plenty to get involved in. I’ve worked with high-profile clients and learned from lawyers who are leaders in their fields. Plus I’ve had early responsibility on a variety of matters – they’ve been to do with everything from aviation to major road projects.

In one team, I worked directly with a partner and was the contact for witnesses, briefing them and going to court with them. In another team, I helped organise the closing of a major deal. I’ve also managed pro bono matters, acting as the first point of contact for clients and writing the first draft of nearly all their correspondence. Ashurst has encouraged me to develop in other ways too. Writing articles for client publications and presenting at legal training sessions are just a couple of examples.

Whichever team I’ve worked in though, I’ve benefited from excellent support, sound advice and in-depth feedback. The firm has an open-door culture and even senior lawyers and partners are really approachable and never too busy to explain tasks and concepts. Their experience and expertise has taught me so much. Plus, they really appreciate the work you do and make time to say thank you. It’s a small thing, but it makes a big difference
