I've been seconded to Hong Kong and Washington, DC.
You typically get to live in the middle of the city (close to the office premises), taking in the life that the place has to offer and meeting colleagues from around our global network. It helps you grow as a lawyer and a person, and gives you a lot more confidence in the way you work.
The training here really helps you become a rounded, holistic lawyer.
We have a lot of resources and can provide structured training. There is likely a training session available on our intranet on any pertinent legal topic you can think of – and if there isn’t – you can take charge of filling that gap!
The Freshfields cricket team was an important part of my decision to join.
I actually started playing cricket for the team here a year and a half before I even joined and have since toured with the team to Dublin, Amsterdam, Jersey, Valencia and more. There are lots and lots of options to get involved in non-work activities.
