In a series of interviews and panel discussions, this podcast explores the many routes to becoming a lawyer as well as the options available during and after a career in law. Hosted by Bianca Vasilache, an A&O trainee, the guest speakers share their stories and practical advice for potential applicants and current practitioners alike.

In this episode of Launch, our host, Bianca Vasilache, a final-seat trainee, is joined by Tom Stancliffe, a former associate in the corporate group, who shares his journey from law to co-founding TRIBE, a natural sports and nutrition brand. In talking about his decision to transition out of law and eventually start his own company and the ways in which his legal skills have come in useful throughout this process, Tom’s story is an insightful reminder of the various career options available as a legal practitioner.
