UK Students - Meet Our Trainees and Former Trainees

Ryan Donnelly

Ryan is a first year trainee in our London office. He studied Law at the University of Manchester and completed the LPC at the University of Law.

“I am currently in my first seat in the Investment Funds department.  I have been given a lot of responsibility and support which has allowed me to quickly became immersed in the area.

I chose to apply for the vacation scheme because of the firm’s leading reputation for high quality work and the small trainee intake each year as I knew that I learn best by getting stuck-in and getting involved in transactions.  Since day one the firm has encouraged me to do so and in addition to firm-wide internal training on topical legal issues, we also attend bi-weekly trainee development presentations which support our on-the-job learning . This combination of primarily learning on-the-job, complimented by structured learning, is the perfect preparation for life as an associate.”
