"Orrick is a US firm, but it's different from the general type of US firms in London. The origins of the firm are in California and Silicon Valley – because of this, we have a real focus on tech and start-ups. This makes for a really exciting work environment and I like feeling that I'm working somewhere with that buzz and drive. It also means that the culture is a bit more relaxed and supportive. I feel very supported by my supervisors – there is definitely the drive to produce work of a high quality but I also feel that any questions I have are answered and people make the time to listen to me."
