I joined Taylor Wessing as a trainee in 2005. I was attracted to the firm because of its IP-rich and technology client base. I could see that it was a dynamic firm with innovative clients in interesting sectors. I also wanted to be part of a firm which was growing internationally and hadn't fully established itself across the globe. It has been an exciting time to be part of and watch the firm grow from strength to strength, both internationally and achieving market leadership in key sectors. Working for such an innovative firm has enabled me to build my product liability practice, while working for some of the world's biggest brands with new technologies, including in the autonomous vehicles space.
What attracted me to Taylor Wessing was its size and reputation in the areas of private wealth work – and IP really stood out when I first applied. I was also interested in the new corporate crime team, which was being set up just as I applied.
