For an alternative insight into the whirlwind lives of lawyers at the junior end of the British legal profession look no further than these Instagram and Twitter accounts


1. Krishna Omkar, associate at Slaughter and May

Slaughter and May‘s Krishna Omkar spends his time embracing business law and effortlessly attending global meetings. Yet the London-based M&A solicitor still manages to get some time to soak up the sunshine beside scenic landscapes.

2. Kevin Winters, trainee-to-be at Shepherd and Wedderburn

Fashion guru and global jet-setter. Kevin Winters, who will soon start a training contract at leading Edinburgh firm Shepherd and Wedderburn, has a profound appreciation for cashmere and evenings out anywhere from Monaco to Hong Kong. Turtleneck. Elegance.

3. Annabelle Gauberti, founding partner of Crefovi

Chic and creative. Having gained experience at firms including DLA Piper, Latham & Watkins and Clifford Chance, Annabelle Gauberti founded Crefovi in 2012 as an entertainment and media firm for the creative industries. And she certainly enjoys the associated perks. Her Instagram account includes photos of her hobnobbing with the fashionable elite and chasing the sunset in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat.

6. Dermot O’Riordan, associate at Hogan Lovells

When Dermot O’Riordan isn’t engaged in high-level acquisition finance at Hogan Lovells, he can be found documenting his exciting holidays soaking up the South American sun with his fellow sun-kissed mates over a snazzy exotic drink in Buenos Aires, or crocodile-hunting in the Amazon.

7. Kathleen Fleming, solicitor at Axiom

The health guru. Originally trained at Norton Rose Fulbright, and currently diving into commercial contracts by day at investment bank Nomura as a locum lawyer employed by Axiom. Kathleen Fleming also enjoys training her body. She lifts. She cooks healthily. She’s a yoga master. Enough said.

8. Hekim Hannan, solicitor at Irvings

Personal injury litigation and fab selfies. Hekim Hannan, a former president of the Law Society Junior Lawyers Division, documents his regime of networking events and decadent breakfasts, while also posting autobiographical photos with holiday backgrounds.

9. Jinita Pandhak, trainee solicitor at Wixted & Co

London-based Jinita Pandhak already has nearly 1,500 followers on Instagram. She is at the crux of documenting the life of a young up-and-comer, including selfie-stick grams in the Netherlands and luxurious moments in the pool.

Happiest and Free-est I've ever been.
