"I am getting to do great work and I am given lots of responsibility – much more than I would at any other firm. I get the chance to deal directly with clients and learn how to deliver a great service to them. Also, here I feel I am an important member of the team who is listened to and treated like an individual. In other firms I don’t think I’d have had the chance to gain such excellent experience."
"At Bryan Cave, I have had the opportunity and support to qualify as a notary public under German law, which I don’t think I would have received in other international firms. I have also been able to gain widespread and intense experience. Working as part of a small, friendly team means that everyone is fully in charge of the transaction as whole and is accordingly recognized by the clients. I was always encouraged to go out and establish business contacts and client relations without facing any restrictions."
"It is really exciting to be part of somewhere that is growing and ambitious. The firm is very friendly and welcoming, with everyone wanting you to succeed, which just isn’t true in many other firms. I really feel like I have landed in the right place."
