Charles Elsom – Trainee Solicitor

A truly inclusive culture

“The working atmosphere is very much collegiate and supportive. You will be working in fairly small teams during a transaction, but those teams will change on the next deal so you gain exposure to the knowledge of a wide variety of qualified lawyers – each of whom is very approachable and willing to answer any questions you may have. I have never felt as if I was working alone. It is always a collective effort and even as a trainee you are treated as an invaluable member of the team.”

Exceptional complex work

“At Shearman & Sterling, you can be sure of getting access to exceptional quality work from an early stage. Shearman’s focus tends to be on getting the high-end, more complex work that is more bespoke and tailored to the client. This presents excellent opportunities not only to learn new legal concepts, but to develop a more commercial understanding of the needs of the client, and how its business operates.”
