I qualified as a solicitor in 2004 after studying French and German at Cambridge and then a Postgrad Diploma in Law at Nottingham, followed by the Legal Practice Course.

Every working day is different and can involve anything from advising charity, healthcare or hospitality clients on complicated or difficult grievance and disciplinary issues to drafting restrictive covenants to protect a client’s business. I also have a lot of experience in family-friendly rights, discrimination and regulatory areas, including DBS checks and data protection.
