Meet Ben Goldby, NQ Solicitor
A seat in China helping to grow our business, great working relationships, challenging projects and much more – it’s safe to say my training contract exceeded my expectations. Today, I’m a qualified lawyer and it’s been an amazing journey to get here.
I decided to qualify into the Pensions team. It’s interesting because when I started I thought my heart was set on litigation but after my pensions seat, I completely changed my mind. It really suits my way of thinking and is a people-focused area to work in, which I enjoy. The legislation is complex so over the next year, I’m looking forward to throwing myself into it and expanding on the knowledge I acquired within my training seat.
I’m excited about building new working relationships and also developing my own client base. The high level of client exposure and contact has been one of my absolute highlights of training at Gowling WLG. You get the chance to learn first-hand and apply your expertise to offer clients solutions, with the support of colleagues always there if you need it, which helps you to become a much stronger lawyer.
It really is an exciting time to be working here. You’re judged on your own merit so if you work hard and make an impact, the opportunities are there for the taking.
