Trainee profile: Giles Butcher (Macfarlanes)
“I enjoyed my studies at university, I wanted to use my degree, and I also wanted to work in a profession that was both academic and commercial. There was therefore never a doubt in my mind that law was the natural choice of career to pursue. While I admire those who go to the bar, I could never really picture myself as a barrister. The obvious alternative was to train as a solicitor.”
