Annabell is a second seat trainee solicitor in the Commercial Department.
After my undergraduate degree, I spent a year working in a start-up offering fitness and well-being on demand; and am interested in understanding the relationship between law and fast-growing companies. After being fortunate enough to delay my training contract, I spent four months working for a social-mobility initiative, helping underrepresented groups access careers in commercial law. Following this, I enjoyed two months exploring Berlin’s history and music, whilst working with migrants to improve their English.
I was attracted to Travers Smith due to its excellent reputation for training, top-tier work, and inclusive culture. I applied after enjoying the vacation scheme’s challenging, yet supportive, environment. From the scheme and my continued interactions, it is clear the firm is interested in trainees as individuals.
