Here are some things our lawyers had to say about their time with Reed Smith:
Our culture is nurtured through prioritising collaboration as one of the key drivers of Reed Smith’s success, ensuring we have an inclusive environment, making sure the firm is fighting fit for the future and encouraging continuous feedback – what we are doing well and where we could do better.
From the moment I joined Reed Smith as a paralegal right up to now as an associate in the Real Estate Group, I have felt incredibly lucky to be surrounded by such supportive mentors. Not only has the group nourished me into who I am today but they have all genuinely cared about my development. Reed Smith is a great place to really develop into a tactful commercial lawyer with ample opportunity to contribute towards our client’s deals.
