Personal Statement

Capital markets was the starting point of my legal career, which has trained me to work with a collaborative attitude and to be focused on achieving a common goal with different parties in a deal.  It is novel legal and commercial ideas that appeal me. I have a strong interest in understanding business operations and am naturally comfortable with financial mechanics. As a second-year trainee at bowers.law where the support, expertise and availability of senior members of the team is readily offered and available, I am ready to learn and grow fast to pull my weight and take on increasing responsibility in different practice areas.
