Sam van Besouw

Sam is a fourth seat trainee solicitor in the Corporate Department.

When not watching Leicester City trying (and failing) to replicate their 2016 title win, I play a lot of sports – football, tennis and squash being particular favourites. I also enjoy sampling new places to eat in London, planning my next trip abroad and re-watching classic British sitcoms (I'm Alan Partridge and The Office are the pick of the bunch).       

I wanted to work at Travers Smith due to the combination of being involved in top-quality work together with the supportive, friendly culture at the firm. Both of those factors have stayed true throughout my time here. I have been able to work on a real variety of matters during my training contract, such as negotiating property agreements, co-ordinating with foreign counsel on a financing transaction and drafting research notes on discrete areas of law.
