International Scholarships & Secondments

Tony from the Banking & Finance team

What: Secondment
Where: Anderson Mori & Tomotsune

“Tokyo is a key focal point for business in Asia, and my time there provided me with exposure to matters in every kind of industry and legal space. I not only gained valuable exposure to the conduct of business in a very different cultural context, but I was also able to make new connections with lawyers from all across the US, Europe, and Asia.

Away from work, I travelled to fascinating places every weekend, ranging from some of the densest urban sprawl in the world to the most tranquil mountain hike. Any secondee to Tokyo is sure to have the experience of a lifetime.”
