I first heard of Roythornes when I was studying at Loughborough University.  After I made the change to law and it came to applying for training contracts, Roythornes stood out for its strong commercial focus and ambition.

I knew Roythornes was for me after my first interview. I had attended interviews at other firms, including large national firms, however the one I attended at Roythornes was unique. The interviewing partners took a real interest in me and my goals and suggested ways in which Roythornes could help me reach them. The level of investment and support Roythornes gives to its trainees is what attracted me to the firm. 

I started in the Commercial Litigation department and from day one I was working on incredibly complex and interesting cases.  Whilst the work can sometimes be very challenging, I have always felt that my supervisors make time to answer my queries. The first few months of my training contract at Roythornes have definitely exceeded my expectations.
