Our teams

Animate

We are only as successful as our people.

Our lawyers bring a diverse range of perspectives to collaboratively produce leading strategic and commercial advice. As a law student, we know it can be confusing to understand the different teams and practice areas that make up a corporate law firm, let alone know which teams you’re interested in trying out! Although no two days are the same and can vary across each office, we thought it would be helpful to give you first-hand insight into what life is like for lawyers in each team.

“Despite being incredibly busy, the lawyers and partners have time for you and they will go out of their way to explain the context and big picture of the client or project that you have been tasked to work on. I’ve found this incredibly helpful while learning the ropes – and it’s also further stimulated my interest in commercial law.”
