We asked current trainee Rachel Feldman on her time with us so far: "I've been exposed to a diverse breadth of matter work for several household name clients and had the opportunity to meet some incredible new colleagues who have gone out of their way to make me feel welcome and supported."

Alastair Nuttall, Trainee Solicitor commented: "We have been mainly working from home, but I have felt supported, with varied work and good opportunities for feedback. I have met lots of different members of the team and come away with some really useful pointers to help me do well in the rest of my training contract"
