First year trainee, London
"It was a firm that seemed to be going places. It was incredibly ambitious (and had just been through a merger) and seemed to be playing above its weight in terms of the clients and deals it was attracting. I wanted to work on large corporate deals that had cross-border elements. The firm had a reputation for being friendly, and the people I met during the application process (from the people who interviewed me to the trainee who gave me a tour) seemed to reflect that."
