Elinor Samuel

  • Trainee

Elinor is a third seat trainee solicitor in the Derivatives & Structured Products Department.

I enjoy travelling, scuba diving, live music and spending time with family and friends.

I wanted to work at Travers Smith as the firm combines top tier work with bespoke training and a smaller trainee intake. The room sharing system and genuinely supportive environment has made me sure I made the right choice.

During my training contract, I have had exposure to both transactional and advisory work. My first seat was in Corporate M&A and ECM, my second in Financial Services & Markets, and I have just begun my third seat in Derivatives & Structured Products. Specific highlights so far include drafting ancillary documents for a reorganisation, liaising with local counsel to coordinate global board changes, drafting FCA applications, and preparing legal advice notes.
