I am a legacy Nabarro trainee and I applied to the firm because of its market-leading Real Estate practice. Trainees have significantly benefitted from the merger as there is now a full spectrum of sectors to choose from, including Energy, Financial Services and Technology.
I have a particular interest in Real Estate, so have targeted property-focused seats. I am currently in Real Estate Disputes, but have previously sat in Planning and Real Estate Transactions. I have handled a real variety of work, including securing planning permission for development projects, negotiating large-scale sales and purchases, and advising commercial landlords on a range of asset management matters.
My knowledge has dramatically improved since starting my training contract. Trainees are given a high degree of ownership over matters and are required to apply a commercial approach to all work. The client interaction that I have experienced has been fundamental to developing my confidence.
The firm’s expertise in the Real Estate sector is unique and it has been fantastic working with and learning from colleagues with such a breadth of knowledge and experience. I hope to do my next seat in the corporate department so I can experience a different element of the firm.
