What surprised you most about Davies during the interview process?
I was surprised that Davies has a lean-by-design model for its firm. This shows that the firm prioritizes developing their talent and trusting new lawyers with more responsibility.
Why did you choose to work at Davies?
I chose Davies because it is a firm where I can learn so much, so fast and where I will be given more responsibilities, yet lots of mentor support. I think that Davies also has high standards and I want to work somewhere that will challenge me.
If you were not a lawyer, what career would you have chosen?
Probably politics. I love connecting with different types of people, understanding how I can serve them and learning about what makes good policy/law.
