Henry Thorpe

  • Trainee

Henry is a fourth seat trainee solicitor in the Commercial, IP & Technology Department.

I began my training contract at Travers Smith in September 2018, following a stint at a national retailer as legal clerk with responsibility for debt recovery. As a keen runner, I typically cover several miles each week on the London roads and like to visit the countryside at weekends to test off-road routes. I am also never far from a book, whether it be a work of historical fiction, philosophy or business history.

I was attracted to Travers Smith due to the prospect of high quality work in a coherent single office environment. Not only has that proved to be a reality, it has also been backed up by supportive partners and instructive training sessions. My transactional work has involved various private debt financings, including in respect of London commercial real estate developments. As a trainee in Dispute Resolution I helped prepare high profile witnesses for cross-examination in the High Court and contributed to the valuation component of a $5 billion civil fraud claim.
