“Working in Singapore has given me a global network of friends/colleagues that I can call upon if I have an issue that touches on their jurisdiction. It has also broadened my commercial mindset, challenged me to become a better lawyer, and helped me to understand the international markets that our clients operate in. I would highly recommend this opportunity to all law graduates!”
JASPER JOHNSON, SOLICITOR
“As a lot of our clients have cross-jurisdictional operations, my secondment has provided an invaluable opportunity for me to improve my understanding of the international market in which Herbert Smith Freehills operates. A global perspective has also helped me to broaden and sharpen my skillet.”
LUISA GIANNONE, SOLICITOR
