Congratulations to PRIME member firm Gibson Dunn, winner of this year’s LawCareers.Net award for ‘Best work placement scheme – City firm’. Clementine Hollyer, second-seat trainee, was attracted to the firm’s scheme for a variety of reasons, as she explains: “I was keen to learn more about US firms; having done some work experience at a magic circle firm when I was at school, I wanted to see the other side of the coin. I knew that I was interested in exploring litigation, and Gibson Dunn’s name kept popping up in relation to some interesting, high-profile cases. Their pro bono work, such as on the Proposition 8 case in California, was also indicative of the firm’s values.”
A huge investment of time and energy from the entire firm ensures that the scheme is a success and is a reflection of the emphasis put on home-grown talent.
