Commitment to creating an inclusive environment
Aodhán McGourty Trainee Solicitor Bachelor of Civil Law, UCD "As a member of the LGBTI community, it means a great deal to be a part of a firm that is not only accepting, but is actively seeking ways to celebrate and promote diversity and inclusiveness. I joined the firm’s LGBTI & Ally group within the first month of my traineeship and was blown away by the enthusiasm of its members and the support it receives from the firm."
Culture & Collaboration
Niall Murray Trainee solicitor, Bachelor of Law & Business, TCD "I have been able to get to know the FinReg team well over the last few months. We have three weekly team catch-ups and virtual social events after hours. I am also in contact with the team daily up to partner level, and in any one day can be working on a number of contentious and advisory matters."
