Trainee profile: Jacqueline Vallat (Travers Smith)

“The prospect of practising law in a dynamic environment with a team of motivated and highachieving people made me consider this career. I found the business and commercial aspect of being a solicitor appealing, and I knew I needed intellectually challenging work to enjoy myself. The possibility of working on transactional rather than contentious matters, as an adviser and facilitator of a client’s projects, made me prefer this career route to the bar. Working in the City of London, with the proximity to the world’s leading businesses and main markets, is the ideal combination of exciting and varied work with like-minded people.”
