A lot of people use the word ‘collegiate’ about our culture here.
I think that we look out for each other and there’s a strong team atmosphere. Our networks are important: I’m part of our Black Affinity Network, which has members from all over the globe. Bringing everyone together in one space is a fantastic experience.
I don’t think there is really a ‘Freshfields type’.
You can let your personality shine through and everyone is sociable. I am involved with our Stephen Lawrence Scholarship scheme, which I had heard about before joining the firm.
