The Browne Jacobson experience - posted on the behalf of a secondee

30 March 2012

Perhaps a slightly unusual situation, but I am a trainee seconded into the firm from one of Browne Jacobson’s clients. As I come towards the end of my six months in the firm I can happily report that I have really enjoyed my time here.

For the last few months, I have been sat in the employment team and have been impressed at just how friendly and approachable the team are (even when you have a question to ask that you feel you really should know the answer to).

Beyond the initial complication of getting to grips with different systems, I have been involved in extremely high quality work, both on the contentious and non-contentious side. This includes drafting contracts, representing individuals in tribunals and involvement in a case in the European courts.

This doesn’t mean to say that it is all work and no play. Since being here I have seen everything from fiercely fought pool and bowling competitions, charity fundraising events, all the way to numerous members of the firm rocking out to their favourite ballads at the ‘Rockaoke’ office Christmas party.

All in all, there is little surprise that the firm goes from strength to strength and I wish everyone well for the future.
