Client Development Assistant
Taking the first steps
Ciaran sits in our Marketing and Business Development team, working on a range of different projects. He has always had an interest in marketing and had spent some time marketing his own business. Joining Foot Anstey as an apprentice was a chance to test his skills in a professional environment.
I applied for the role at Foot Anstey due to the diversity of the role – I can work across multiple disciplines meaning that I am getting valuable experience in lots of different areas allowing me to find out where I excel most and what I most enjoy.
Partner, Head of E&I
Moving out of the City
Ian is our Head of Energy & Infrastructure Sector. After a number of years working for national and international firms, most recently Pinsent Masons, he saw the opportunity to do interesting work and explore different possibilities – with more control over his future.
What really appealed to me about Foot Anstey was the opportunity to work at a firm where I could do great quality work, with hugely talented people and with an ethos where I would have a strong voice and a real say in the direction of the firm and of the energy and infrastructure practice.
From Trainee to Senior Associate
Vikki started life at Foot Anstey as a Trainee and is now a Senior Associate in our Commercial Litigation team. She works on general commercial and corporate disputes, but also has a focus on media related litigation.
I get to drive cases and strategies forward with as much support as needed, from both supervisors and other members of the team assisting with matters. I also really love that I am able to work with lots of different members of my team as well as collaborating with others across the firm.
