Application for TMT Associate Role with Dentons
Re: Application for TMT Associate Role with Dentons
Dear Recruitment Team
I would like to submit this covering letter in support of my application for TMT Associate Role with Dentons.
I am applying for this position because I am very interested in technology and its impact on businesses operating across different sectors. I find the firm’s expertise in the payments and blockchain field to be very interesting as I like to keep abreast with the latest implementations of blockchain technology in various industries such as energy and utilities, latest cryptocurrency ICOs and developments. In the past, I have helped out with some very revolutionary software projects and cryptocurrency whitepaper and roadmap for an ICO. This position will present me with a quick-paced environment where I will have to keep abreast with the latest technological developments and then apply them creatively to clients operating across different business sectors. This role is a great building block to my experience obtained in multiple industries with a more innovative and technological slant. I am a very fast learner
During my previous role at Dentons, I really enjoyed the firm’s friendly and supportive culture which will be a perfect fit for me. The firm’s inclusive and collegiate culture will give me a chance to work in one of the largest international law firms with the intimacy of a smaller office, which will allow me to get to know my colleagues and clients on a more personal level whilst still having access to the depth and breadth of the firm’s global resources. The firm’s prestigious client base will give me a chance to work on some of the largest and most complex precedent-setting legal cases, which will make for an intellectually stimulating environment.
During my employment at some of the leading international and US law firms, I have received direct exposure on some of the most high-profile legal matters. This experience helped to develop my entire set of skills which will enable me to operate successfully as a newly qualified solicitor. I was vested with high levels of responsibility and have demonstrated an outstanding ability to manage my workload and prioritise competing deadlines.
I possess very good teamwork skills, which will allow me to work successfully with lawyers and clients from different countries and jurisdictions. I have very good communication and drafting skills. In my previous roles, I helped to draft witness statements, expert reports, a prospectus for an IPO of a luxury goods company and regularly corresponded with clients via email, conference calls and in-person. I had attended a board of directors EGM where I explained complex issues to clients and lawyers in a very simple and understandable language.
During my employment, I have received quality exposure to multiple industries and legal practice areas, including oil and gas, telecoms, banking and financial services, real estate and some others. This has developed my commercial awareness which, in turn, allows me to align all of my work with the requirements of clients and their respective businesses. I have received a lot of direct contact with very high-profile clients and their associates, which has developed my client-facing skills. I always undertake my work with utmost attention to details. My language skills will allow me to add value to international cases and forge effective relationships with overseas lawyers and clients. I possess very good problem-solving skills and enjoy working on complex cases to devise cutting-edge solutions to problems without any precedents.
I am very motivated and enjoy new challenges. In my spare time, I regularly do [sport] and help to coach others. [sport] has helped to hone my discipline and resilience to pressure and new challenges.
I thank you for your consideration and look forward to hearing from you.
