As part of our ‘Meet the Team’ series, we are delighted to feature Muskan Khadka, from our Legal team who celebrates her first anniversary with Cleveland & Co next week! To celebrate Muskan’s first year, we sat down to ask her a few questions about her experiences at Cleveland & Co and what she enjoys about her job.

Why did you join Cleveland & Co?

I joined Cleveland & Co because what stood out to me was the firm’s strong reputation for providing a wide range of legal support to the investment management industry which seemed like an excellent opportunity to expand my horizons.

What are the best bits of working at Cleveland & Co so far?

I’ve really enjoyed working with and getting to know the team, both in Sydney and in the UK. The team is very diverse and bring a plethora of experience and expertise with them. There’s plenty of seasoned professionals that I’ve learned a lot from, and the teamwork and collaboration is an enjoyable part of the experience.

 Tell us about your career path.

I’m in my penultimate year at university so there’s still a bit to go for me. Cleveland & Co has been my first professional job in the legal industry, and I hope the experience I gain here will be invaluable in my career.

 What do you love most about your job?

I like that in my position I get to do a lot of hands-on work which is experience that isn’t really common for juniors like me. I get to see client relations up close and how those dynamics work as well as the processes that give me a detailed understanding of how the industry works.

 What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?

A teacher once told me that as long as I’m willing to have a “red, hot crack” at everything, I’ll be fine.

 If you didn’t go into law, what other role might you have done?

I considered being a doctor for a really long time. Ultimately, I figured a fear of blood wasn’t a great quality for a potential medicine candidate!

 Favourite spot in Sydney and why?

I really like the Botanical Gardens, it’s quite big so no matter how busy it gets, you can always find a quiet spot to have a picnic. It’s also nice to walk through the middle of the Gardens or by the water to take in the sights.

 Tell us a surprising or a fun fact about you.

I’ve been a big Taylor Swift fan for as long as I can remember.
