I have always loved the pace of things at A&O, there’s a great energy you get from working here which radiates off everyone and everything. Each day brings something new and exciting. Even on my first day, it was really busy with lots of interesting talks, team events and networking sessions. Everyone here was interested in us, the impact we wanted to make and what we wanted out of the future. That energy has been kept up since day one and has really rubbed off onto me.
I’m currently working on some big assignments with important clients that are shaping the industries they operate in. I’ve only been here for one year and I’ve already advised general counsels. I get a kick out of seeing my work driving change and influencing our future. While I’m given the freedom to run with some pretty challenging tasks and I hold a lot of responsibility with clients, I’m always supported by colleagues and I’m constantly developing and growing. The trust that’s instilled in me has affirmed my confidence and helped me thrive.
None of what I do would be possible without the people I work with. Culturally, the firm’s collaboration, social life and teamwork are the fuel that makes it all happen. Everyone here is so driven and when you add all that drive together, we all push each other and make an unbeatable team. Drive and future focus reverberates throughout the entire firm, across the global network. For example, our new Fuse innovation space is really making waves and positioning A&O way ahead of the competition when it comes to tech-led legal solutions.
Fuse also positions A&O as the clear choice for graduates. Legal tech is the future but it’s still in its infancy. With Fuse, graduates get to develop their careers in parallel with the tech that’s changing the way law works. They get to mould it and ultimately gain more experience using it than anyone else. On top of that, even as a recent graduate, you’ll get to work on some of the biggest, most talked about cases and travel the world on multinational assignments, immersing yourself in new cultures and building an international network.
Made for more means being future-proof, fully equipped to tackle any challenge that comes along.
