Ellie Hampson-Jones is going great guns as an associate at Penningtons Manches, working on high-stakes reported cases, including one that was heard in the High Court following a four-day final hearing. Before beginning her traineeship in 2013, HampsonJones worked as an executive assistant for the CEO of Cable & Wireless (which has since been bought by Vodafone). ‘It was amazing training, like a mini-MBA,’ she says. ‘It also gives me an unusual insight into my clients’ day jobs.’ Having previously worked at a law firm in Los Angeles, she is also well placed to advise on Anglo-US issues.
