The NLG provides our newest lawyers with the opportunity to gain exposure to different practice areas and lawyering styles before making a commitment to a specific practice. Individuals in the NLG may focus on a particular area of practice, or compare practices, during their first year with Jones Day.

Prior to joining Jones Day, Hugh was the tipstaff (judicial clerk) to Justice John Sackar of the Supreme Court of New South Wales and also worked as a paralegal in a boutique commercial law firm.
