Networks and culture

Some of the biggest steps you take in your career won’t be at your desk. It’s the people you meet and the relationships you build; the first encounters that prove to be lasting bonds. It all helps in building your career – and helping you settle at our firm.

I’m in the Norton Rose Fulbright choir, which is the best thing. We were part of a huge charity music gala last summer, when I was in my first seat. It meant teaming up with a load of other law firm choirs for a big concert in London, right in the city centre. It was an amazing chance to meet new people.

I played softball for the first time here, and everyone who came along was so lovely – even though we got absolutely battered by the other side. We celebrated the small victories though – and it was definitely for the fun, not the winning.


Zahra Sachedina, first-seat trainee

My favourite moment so far - probably the House of Lords vs House of Commons Tug of War. It was a great evening in the gardens at Westminster: relaxing in the sun, being part of a tug of war of our own to raise money for Macmillan, then watching the Lords and MPs battle it out.


Edward Bentley, third-seat trainee

I’m part of the firm’s sailing club, and we’ve just done a weekend racing against other law firms around the Isle of Wight. It was brilliant.
