ANZ Mer­i­tas Intern­ship Exchange

It has been an absolute plea­sure to have Pierce Bedog­ni around the Swaab office for the Mer­i­tas ANZ Intern­ship Exchange. In Pierce’s two weeks at Swaab, he has spent time in our Prop­er­ty, Plan­ning & Projects, Com­mer­cial and Lit­i­ga­tion depart­ments absorb­ing knowl­edge, shar­ing expe­ri­ences and learn­ing all the ropes of the Aus­tralian cul­ture and legal environment.

The lawyer exchange is the first of its kind in the ANZ Mer­i­tas region and has been a valu­able expe­ri­ence. We say thank you and farewell to Pierce and wish him the best of luck in future! We recent­ly took some time out to ask Pierce a few ques­tions about his expe­ri­ence in Australia.

  1. What have you enjoyed most about your stay in Syd­ney? I love Syd­ney Har­bour and the fact we are close to the water!”
  2. How does Martel­li McK­egg dif­fer from Swaab? Much the same actu­al­ly! Both firms are quite sim­i­lar although in NZ I work in an open plan area. Every­one at Swaab has been so help­ful and accommodating.”
  3. How has the exchange been ben­e­fi­cial to you? It has been a great way to expe­ri­ence first-hand, the inner work­ings of anoth­er firm, in a dif­fer­ent coun­try and to share the learn­ing expe­ri­ence with like­mind­ed peo­ple with­out the risk!”

Thank you, Pierce for par­tic­i­pat­ing in this ini­tia­tive and for set­ting the stage for future exchange through­out the Mer­i­tas ANZ net­work of firms.
