I am a highly organised and motivated lawyer currently employed by Clarke Tierney, a well-respected mid-tier corporate practice based in Sydney. During my two years PAE with this firm, I have enjoyed a high level of autonomy and responsibility, working closely with a team of four to deliver legal services of the highest standard to over a dozen Australian companies.
I am valued for the passion I put into my work. More than anything, I look forward to a stimulating position in a well-respected and supportive firm where I can continue to hone and develop my corporate legal skills.
