What attracted you to a career in law?
For many, the thought of a career in law stems from watching television programmes which generally portray a glamourous life (thank you Suits!). For me, however, when it actually came to deciding what career to pursue, it was the diverse number of opportunities that attracted me to law. I wanted to be able to work with a breadth of clients, across varied, interesting sectors. I wanted a rewarding career that would constantly challenge me. Working as a lawyer, no two cases are the same and you have to continually learn, progress and adapt the way you think and advise.
Please outline your area of expertise. What might you do in a typical day?
I am a dispute resolution lawyer and I advise on all aspects of commercial and civil litigation, working to resolve contentious issues for companies, individuals (including trustees, directors, shareholders and partners) and estates.
I act for both Claimant and Defendant parties, in cases at a pre-action stage and in cases that progress to the County Court, High Court and Upper Tribunal. I have experience in Alternative Dispute Resolution mechanisms including mediation.
I advise on a wide range of legal issues and I have particular expertise in: contractual disputes; negligence and professional negligence cases; intellectual property disputes; disputed Wills and contentious probate. I have also developed expertise in advising (often large commercial) land owners on the Electronic Communications Code and the evolving law in this area.
There really isn’t a typical day in the life of a litigation lawyer as every day is different!
What skills/strengths do you need to be a successful lawyer?
Knowing the law and staying up to date in your area of expertise is obviously important, as is the ability to balance multiple cases and competing demands/deadlines. However, being a successful solicitor isn’t just about knowing the law. Creativity and commercial awareness are key. Having a solid understanding of your client, their business, the sector in which they operate, their current and future challenges and what motivates them is essential. You have got to be able to get to the bottom of the matter in front of you even when the facts may not be clear. Ultimately, you need to present solutions for your clients which meet their needs and this sometimes may need you to think outside of the box.
Do you have any advice for budding solicitors interested in beginning a career in law?
My top tips are to keep an open mind when considering what areas of law may interest you and to never be afraid to ask questions! There is not a week that goes by that you do not learn something new in a career in law and having the ability to adapt quickly is essential, but that’s all part of the challenge and part of the fun.
Do you have any interests outside of law?
I enjoy travelling and exploring new places, cultures and food. A lot of my time is currently taken up in renovating my house, but when I do have a spare moment I enjoy painting and baking.
