Associate, Finance

"There's a massive range of people here from all over the world. People from different religions, cultures, colours. That's what drew me here, and that's why I applied here rather than any of the other magic circle firms. Because I think Clifford Chance does actually mean what they say about diversity."

Alastair Livesey

"It's very rare to have a day when you don't have anything to do. There's constantly people coming to you and asking you to be involved in advisory or transactional work. You're constantly getting to see new deals and how they work from a number of different perspectives."

Melissa Sykes

Associate, Real Estate

"At any one time I could be on five or six different transactions. Anything from development work, negotiating leases, being involved with energy projects. I work for a variety of different partners and different teams."

Fadeia Hossian

"No matter what it is there's always somebody there to ask so it never feels overwhelming or daunting. You know that you've got that support. It's only when you stop and look back that you realise how much you've learnt in quite a short period of time."

Daniel Steele

Associate, Capital Markets

"The case actually progressed to high court. For me it was a very exciting moment of my training contract because when you're younger and you're thinking of becoming a lawyer you often wonder what it might be like. I really enjoyed seeing each step of the developments. It made me feel very proud to be part of that moment and having worked towards securing a positive outcome for the client."
