What attracted me to Taylor Wessing was its size and reputation in the areas of private wealth work –
and IP really stood out when I first applied. I was also interested in the new corporate crime team, which was being set up just as I applied.

On my training contract I had four seats – Financial Services Regulatory, Banking and Finance, Disputes and Investigations, and Pensions. Each was a totally different experience, which was ideal as I wanted to try different areas and types of work before choosing which suited me best.

During my time in Disputes, I was part of a team conducting an internal money laundering investigation on behalf of our client, a Russian investment bank. This was a very high profile matter that had hit the news, and it mixed both political and legal elements. It was incredibly exciting to take responsibility and analyse the relevant correspondence – and I loved being in the meeting with the partners ‘cross-examining’ the clients to get a full picture of the events.

Of course, to be a good lawyer, you need to demonstrate and keep honing your technical ability and knowledge. But what I’ve learned since I joined here is that you also need bags of emotional intelligence. Sometimes it’s just not enough to know the law; you must be able to communicate effectively, understand people and situations, and work in a team to reach the best solutions.

A successful lawyer is one that also keeps adapting to new laws and regulations and is always ahead of the game. And I feel that Taylor Wessing, with its technology sector focus, totally embodies this.
