Ellie is a fourth seat trainee solicitor in the Derivatives & Structured Products Department.
I enjoy planning trips away with friends, reading a thriller, too much shopping, and all things north-west London. At the weekends, you will often find me sampling the best of London's food, walking my dog and signing up to a new round of trendy gym classes that I will only attend once.
I chose Travers Smith because I wanted to experience high-quality work whilst being supported by a close-knit trainee intake. I'm lucky enough to work with lawyers who are friendly and full of humour – no one takes their work so seriously that they don't have time to laugh.
My time so far has consisted of a mixture of transactional and contentious work, and a great deal of responsibility. Client contact is encouraged from the start, meaning that I have regularly attended client meetings, and actively contributed to conference calls and advisory notes on a range of matters.
