Learn more about what it's like to be a trainee in this area from current trainee, Shannon Tong:
Tax, Trusts, and Estates (TTE) is an extremely varied area. The team’s work includes advising clients on lifetime planning, such as will drafting and providing tax advice. Team members will often develop long-standing relationships with their clients, even sometimes advising multiple generations of the same family.
Every member of the team, from the partners, associates, to the support staff, is always happy to answer my questions. Tax legislation and analysis can be extremely complex, and the team has provided me with incredible support in developing an understanding of the different concepts.
I would encourage you to consider a seat here if you enjoy problem-solving, research, and interaction with the black letter law. It's an area with lots to learn, and would suit you if you have a curious mind and a thirst for knowledge. You'll have the opportunity to develop personal relationships with clients, and advise them on how to achieve their personal goals at various life stages.
