Event Feedback

‘I wanted to reiterate my appreciation. It was such a great event – hearing a diverse panel discuss their unique paths to success. It definitely put most of my insecurities at bay, but in particular it was our discussion that answered a lot of my queries and reassured most of my worries. I will always remember your invaluable advice and I am so fortunate to have had the opportunity to speak with you.’

‘I wanted to say thank you for your honest pearls of wisdom yesterday and for taking the time to talk to myself and others …. I really appreciated how you talked about your firm as a family of like-minded people, as well as how you spoke openly about the more human and personal side of your profession, which is something I believe I would thoroughly enjoy as a solicitor’.

‘It was great meeting you at the Law Fair in Cambridge earlier last week. Thank you for taking the time to explain more about your work in Peters & Peters and your experience as a litigator.’
