Prior to joining Morrisons I trained at Clarkson Wright & Jakes Solicitors, taking a particular interest in corporate, commercial and employment law. Qualifying in September 2014, I initially joined a specialist employment practice in Chichester, before deciding to return to London to practice business law at Morrisons in April 2015.
I have a law degree from the University of Kent in Canterbury. Following graduation in July 2010, I worked with a start-up enterprise delivering student services. From September 2011 I studied the legal practice course at Kaplan Law School in London obtaining a distinction. I spent the summer prior to my training contract working with a firm of legal costs draftsmen.
