"I've been involved in varied projects - including a new island being built out of the sea in Bahrain."
I've had really varied work, from advising a wealthy homeowner who's building a new extension, to getting involved in a new island being built out of the sea in the Middle East.
There's work acting for developers, doing residential and mixed-use projects and advising contractors and hotel developers. I'm also heavily involved in advising on energy from waste and bio-energy projects.
There's a real consensus amongst people who've come from other firms that Trowers treats its staff really well. It's really non-hierarchical and friendly here. I'd only been at Trowers a few weeks, when I was invited to lunch with the Senior Partner, along with a selection of people from all over the firm including solicitors, secretaries, finance people and admin support.
There's a real culture of people being allowed to make time for their friends and family. It's not just respected - it's encouraged that you'll have a home life and social life as well as a work life.
Calm under pressure. Analytical. Thorough.
