The opportunity to travel and work in other jurisdictions is what really attracted me to Baker McKenzie. Before I graduated, I took part in the International Vacation Scheme, spending four weeks in the London office and another four in Washington, DC. It was great to experience how the Firm operated in another jurisdiction, and really fun to get a snapshot of what my working life would look like. During my Training Contract I was offered a secondment with a client and another in the Dispute Resolution team in our Hong Kong office. Those experiences have given me a bit of an edge in terms of understanding how disputes work in other jurisdictions, but even sitting at my desk in London I work with clients all over the world.
