First year trainee, London
"I have a good level of client interaction in transactional departments, less so in contentious departments. Although I often have to do administrative tasks as well, I do have a good level of responsibility."
First year trainee, London
"In my previous seats (corporate, real estate and M&A) I had almost daily contact with the clients and a high degree of responsibility within the deals I worked on. In my current seat (litigation/arbitration) I am more removed from the clients, and the work is more academic but the level of responsibility is still high."
