I completed the GDL and LPC in London at Clyde & Co's chosen provider together with some of the other trainees in my intake. After three weeks of training in the London office with the whole trainee intake I moved to Doha and completed my first seat with the corporate team in the Doha office.
When I was applying for a training contract I knew that I wanted to work in the Middle East, so Clyde & Co was a natural choice for me because it is the largest international firm in the region and offers a training contract with a specific focus on it.

I completed my second seat with a marine and international trade team in London, my third seat was with the employment team in Dubai and my fourth seat with the ship finance and superyacht team in London. On qualification I returned to the Doha office and rejoined the corporate team. The chance to travel and work in different offices during my training contract was fantastic. 

When I was applying for a training contract I knew that I wanted to work in the Middle East, so Clyde & Co was a natural choice for me because it is the largest international firm in the region and offers a training contract with a specific focus on it. At the time I was applying for a training contract, Clyde & Co was the only firm offering this so it stood out. 

I have also taken part in a pro-bono scheme advising clients on a wide variety of issues including planning, debt recovery, housing and employment issues at the Lambeth Law Centre during my second seat. I really enjoyed having the chance to work with clients on matters that were very different to the rest of the work I was involved with.
