When did you join DLA Piper? 

I joined in 2012, as junior associate in the Corporate group. I arrived at DLA Piper with 25 other colleagues from our previous firm and joining the firm represented a real opportunity for me to forge a satisfying career. 

Are you satisfied with your career path at DLA Piper? 

Definitely, yes. I have done my best to make the most of all the learning tools and development opportunities made available by the firm.

The DLA Piper Academy provides you with the tools to shape your career journey and reach your full potential.

Our Academy brings together all learning and development opportunities from across the international firm and introduces tailored learning plans and new and innovative digital learning experiences. 

I also participated in the SuperFlash program in Sydney, where I had the opportunity to work for two weeks alongside my Australian colleagues and create an important link between our offices. DLA Piper also has clearly structured career pathways. In 2020, I was promoted to senior lawyer and now I am building my personal client portfolio. 

What pro bono activities have you been involved in? 

I joined the pro bono team in 2016 and it is a key part of my role in the firm. This is not only because it’s the right thing to do, but because it contributed to developing my leadership, teamwork and communication skills. I always try to find a connection between pro bono activity and the energy sector, as an opportunity to share our knowledge and skills. One amazing experience with the pro bono team was when I took part in the Know Your Rights project, where I ran a lesson on contractual law for a group of asylum seekers.
