You will have access to the partner and other senior lawyers to grow and develop your career. The experience gained at this firm, along with the support of the partners is second to none. If you have at least 1 to 2 years post admission experience in the area of commercial litigation or insurance litigation (and exposure to transport disputes) you are working for a well-respected law firm, then my client would love to hear from you. Alternatively, if you have a strong and genuine interest in the area of transport law, my client would also love to hear from you.
