International Scholarships & Secondments

Daria from the Corporate Advisory team

What: Secondment
Where: Beijing

“Given the growth and international significance of the Chinese market, the unique insights I have gained through my firsthand experiences in China are already proving to be very valuable to my career. I have shared this secondment opportunity with English, French, German, American and Spanish lawyers who are also on secondment with me, allowing me to develop a deeper understanding of each of their jurisdictions as well.

In our downtime, we have been able to explore this exciting megacity and its surrounds, giving us a true feel for the culture. China is a beautiful and juxtaposed place which never ceases to surprise and amaze me. This secondment has been a wonderful experience and invaluable for my personal and professional development."
