New additions to the team

Prabin who joined us on placement from Southampton University in August 2016 has re-joined to complete his studies and we look forward to welcoming him back after his graduation in Summer 2018. Due to the success of Prabin’s placement, we have continued with the placement programme at Southampton University and welcome Kiranpreet Sandhu, who joined us in July 2017. Meridian will provide Kiran with a wider insight into the Corporate Finance world providing her with opportunities, new experiences and knowledge which we hope she will be able to draw on and use within her final year of studies and for the future.

Continuing our secondment programme, Laura Austin joined the team in March 2017 from national law firm Shoosmiths LLP. Laura has been an incredible asset to the team and as such her secondment has been extended by an additional three months. Laura has continued to apply and develop her corporate law knowledge at Meridian. We have also welcomed Gerrard ‘Gez’ Tin to the team, who joins us from regional law firm Trethowans LLP on a six month secondment programme. Gez has spent the last 18 months in banking law which allows him to add real value on the banking and corporate aspects of documenting the intentions of the parties, as well as legal due diligence in the early stages of deals. Gez is our 16th secondee since we started the programme in 2008.

Philip Mettam recently attended Southampton University's placement fair to promote Meridian's placement programme.  He was extremely impressed by the high level of business school candidates he met who are looking for careers in professional services.  Read more
