Conventional wisdom dictates that corporate growth lies in marketing and chasing mandates. For us at Aina Blankson, our People remain our Number One Client and Mandate. While we undoubtedly appreciate the importance of winning fresh mandates, our most important mandate of all is our people as they are the primary Clients, Owners and Leaders of the Firm. To fulfill our vision of being a leading global Law firm with distinctive world class standards, we believe in our people as they represent the heart of the Firm.
It is indeed an interesting and invaluable learning experience. Few months into the program, I can confidently say that being an AB National Service Trainee has showed me how leading global law firms operate, it has taught me how professional lawyers work and interact, what service standards are required by clients, and which projects are handled by the different practices. As an Trainee AB, I am happy to know we are not restricted to a particular practice area. There is always an opportunity to move around if you show significant interest and you have exhibited requisite skills.
“The Aina Blankson Incubation Leadership Program has exposed me to the rudiments of the legal profession and presented me with a solid foundation to thrive. During the program, I have actively participated in major and complex transactions handled by the Firm. Also, I was given the opportunity to interface directly with clients. All in all, the Program was a good experience for me as I have improved my writing, problem-solving and critical thinking skills. The Firm has inspired me to be a better version of myself.”
AB's impressive range of clients and work, coupled with the professional yet informal nature of the work environment, made an immediate impact on me. From the beginning of the graduate program, I was involved in the highest quality of legal work, providing litigation and general corporate advice. Much of the experience I gained during the graduate program was real 'hands-on'. I have been given a high level of responsibility and the opportunity to work on several high-level transactions and proposals with the senior lawyers, that has meant the work has always been stimulating and rewarding
