Back to profiles
I did an internship as a Summer Student at Clifford Chance in the summer before my final year at university. When I had completed it, I was absolutely convinced that Clifford Chance was where I wanted to work.

When I joined the Corporate department as an "abogado", I realised that I was taking on responsibilities that, at university, I would never have dreamed possible. 

In my first few months here, I worked on important business integration deals (both national and international) and prepared detailed reports that, with the appropriate support and review by more experienced lawyers, were then sent directly to the client. 

Knowing that my work was going to influence significant financial decisions at major companies around the world contributed greatly to my professional development and motivated me to work with ever greater attention to detail and accuracy.
