Fiona Henderson – Summer Clerk 2012/2103
My summer clerking experience with Anderson Lloyd was all I hoped for and more. I was warmly welcomed and actively included in everything from meetings to coffee trips. The numerous social events marking the lead-up to Christmas provided a unique opportunity to get to know everyone outside of the work environment. A standout for me was the wide range of matters I was involved in. Not only did I work in both the Commercial and Litigation teams, I worked with every solicitor in each team and therefore was exposed to the various specialty areas within them. The work was both challenging and interesting – a combination of research and writing opinions, drafting letters and preparing legal documents. Everyone was very patient and always happy to answer my questions. A culture of mutual support and a shared sense of humour created a friendly workplace that was a pleasure to be a part of.
Fiona joined our commercial team in Christchurch full time in 2014.
