Me in a minute

There is always a lot to learn, be it legal or non-legal

I never thought about becoming a lawyer in my childhood as I never thought that I could get into a law school. As time goes by, I realize that law isn’t that intimidating.

Here at Withers, I can always get involved with different kinds of work, from drafting documents, meeting with clients, research, serving documents, attending business development events, to organizing parties etc. One thing I learned is that there is always a lot to learn, be it legal or non-legal.

I have enjoyed working with my colleagues here. Everyone here has been helpful and caring. The work environment is positive, we feel valued and enjoy coming to work.

As a trainee and as my first full-time job, Withers is a brilliant place.
