Trainee Solicitor

Private Client

01582 765111


I am a Trainee Solicitor in the fourth seat of my training contract. I have completed seats in the firm’s Commercial Property, Residential Conveyancing and Family departments. I am sitting my fourth seat in our Private Client department in Harpenden.

Under supervision during my training contract I have gained insight into the strategies and subtleties required to reach a successful outcome for each client- whatever that may look like.

I pride myself on having a balanced understanding of the nuances in each client’s matter, while also being able to adopt a bigger picture approach where this is needed. I am conscientious and proactive.

I have had the opportunity to work with a range of fee-earners across the firm and have learnt a huge amount from each of them. I have particularly developed my drafting skills and recognise the importance of distilling legal documents and processes to make things digestible.


In my spare time I enjoy sport climbing and bouldering, anything equestrian and keeping generally active. I also enjoy travelling and reading.
