Ashurst has a reputation as a trusted adviser to some of the world’s leading organisations. But that wasn’t the only thing that drew me to a career here. The people and the culture were also a big attraction. As well as exposure to fascinating complex projects, there’s a really supportive team atmosphere.

The people really care about your professional development. Their encouragement and support have helped me take on an engaging mix of public and commercial law. It’s included everything from major capital acquisitions and infrastructure projects to unfair dismissal and discrimination claims. My work has been as varied as the matters themselves. As well as drafting agreements, I’ve researched complex issues, attended court and prepared briefs to counsel.

A particular highlight was a multi-billion dollar project for the Australian Government. I helped draw up the agreements, drafted advice, took part in negotiations with several international parties and liaised directly with the client. I worked closely with my supervising partners and senior associates throughout, and they all put a lot of trust in me. In fact, I was surprised at just how much responsibility I had early on. Even at their busiest, my supervising lawyers and partners took the care and time to give me meaningful work. Senior-level commitment to developing early career lawyers is a focus.
