I passed my ten year milestone at Sharpe Pritchard in 2019, having joined as a trainee solicitor. I joined the firm because I wanted to join a medium-sized law firm in the City that advises on cutting edge deals, has clear routes for progression and offers a genuine work-life balance.
I really enjoy my work life here. My top three reasons for this are:
- Exciting work that is challenging and at the cutting edge of public and regulated sectors in the UK
- There is no hierarchy here and the firm offers true autonomy and responsibility from an early stage in your career, giving you flexibility in the way that you work
- The nature of the team is quite different from traditional law firms – we have a 50/50 split in the male/female ratio of partners, and you are truly championed on the basis of merit alone
I continue to stay at the firm because when you join Sharpe Pritchard you join a community of like-minded lawyers that are committed to public sector law. I have enjoyed huge success here in a short space of time and cannot wait to see what the next chapter brings.]]>
