Partner

“Clyde & Co gives you the flexibility to progress at a time that’s right for you. You’re not held back by red tape. Being quite ambitious, a lot of the opportunities I’ve had are from my own hard work, but also the outcome of the processes that the firm put in place to support people. I’ve always felt supported.”

“The ethos is inclusive and welcoming. Nothing is too big or too small for anyone to help you with. We have a lot of social events so people can speak outside of work. You’re included from the top down so that you’re learning all the time.”
