I am a Trainee Solicitor at Charles Russell Speechlys. I grew up in Portugal where I studied law and moved to the UK in my twenties to pursue an LLM. Having experience in academia and a research and training consultancy, I decided that I wanted to be a solicitor and work with people and for people. My career path has not been straightforward and a long period of illness made it especially challenging. It nevertheless taught me to be resilient and more empathetic towards people’s personal circumstances. I believe that having a diverse workforce and fostering an inclusive environment are great strengths in any organisation. After all, it takes all kinds of smart! I have felt welcomed and valued at Charles Russell Speechlys and would be glad to share my experiences and some of the lessons I have learnt.
