Farani Javid Taylor Solicitors LLP Training Contract Application
Farani Javid Taylor Solicitors LLP
60 Grays Inn Road
London, WC1X 8LU
I have completed a qualifying law degree at the University of [university] with an upper second class grade in [year]. I am interested in undertaking a training contract with Farani Javid Taylor Solicitors LLP.
I would like to train at Farani Javid Taylor Solicitors LLP because I am attracted by the high quality of work undertaken by the firm and its international client base. This, coupled with the firm’s small size and collegiate culture, will present me with a hands-on experience and high-quality work. The firm’s ability to provide seamless solutions to clients internationally makes it an exciting place to work at because it will expose me to interesting and sophisticated cross-border work which will improve my knowledge of international markets and how different jurisdictions interact. I find the firm’s expertise across a spectrum of practice areas very attractive because it will provide me with an opportunity to experience a varied workload and come to an informed decision as to what area I would like to qualify into. Likewise, the firm’s strong expertise in a range of sectors will develop my understanding of the challenges and opportunities clients face in their respective industries which will consolidate my commercial awareness and enable me to provide cutting-edge solutions.
I want to become a solicitor because every day is varied, challenging and engaging. At university, I enjoyed applying and manipulating law to hypothetical scenarios during my modules and mooting competitions because it stimulated my intellectual curiosity since every situation was never the same and required a different approach. As commercial matters span many areas of law, industries and borders, they demand the application of lateral thinking and extensive problem-solving. In turn, this would see me work in integrated teams with a commercial focus on the problem in a quick-paced environment with approaching deadlines. At [law firm] , I especially enjoyed working in teams across different time zones to solve commercial problems. This produced more interesting work, greater variety and a wider group of experts to learn from which made my work environment stimulating and rewarding.
I believe that I am a strong candidate for this role because I possess very strong client facing and communication skills. At [law firm] , I worked very closely with a [language] high-net-worth individual. I delivered an exceptional service by forging a successful rapport with the client and demonstrated a thorough understanding of the core issues as well as cultural empathy. At [law firm], I acted as a central port of contact for a [language] client operating in the natural resources sector. I accompanied the firm’s partners to all client meetings, a board of directors EGM in Amsterdam and liaised with the client via emails and phone around the clock. I demonstrated enthusiasm and commitment at all times by taking a keen interest in the client’s business and aligned all my work with the client’s commercial requirements. I handled large levels of responsibility with a professionalism and developed resilience to pressure and tight time scales. When the supervising partner was out of the country, I successfully briefed another partner on the case and communicated succinctly to explain the core issues of the case which allowed the partner to make all the relevant decisions in a timely manner.
I am a good team player and have an ability to express my ideas in a simple and understandable manner which will enable me to discuss and develop ideas and contribute my perspectives. At [law firm], I worked closely with the firm’s London and [city] offices when proofreading and amending witness statements. I played a proactive role by sharing my ideas and perspectives with other team members. I kept a check on time, suggested ways to improve our work and helped others with their workload, which assisted our team in meeting a tight deadline. This experienced helped to develop my organisational skills since I was required to prioritise competing deadlines and manage my time and resources efficiently.
I am entrepreneurial, enthusiastic and well organised which will enable me to deal with challenging situations professionally and effectively. In [year], I pioneered the University of [university] Amateur [sport] Club for the first time in fifty years by developing and implementing a successful strategy to persuade the Sports Committee to grant permission for a new [sport] club.
I believe that my linguistic abilities as well as my cultural empathy will allow me to thrive at Farani Javid Taylor Solicitors LLP and serve as a valuable contribution towards the firm’s objectives and growth.
I thank you for your consideration and look forward to hearing from you.
