Trainee Solicitor


01582 731161


I am a Trainee Solicitor in the fourth seat of my Training Contract, currently in the Employment Department, having sat my last seat in our Commercial Property Department. I have previously completed seats in the Family and Employment.

I assist other fee earners across all of their matters and have enjoyed a high level of responsibility and client contact in doing so. This has helped me develop key skills such as drafting, negotiation and legal research.

I am able to assist clients with their queries and progress their matters under appropriate supervision, whilst always keeping them informed of developments. I have experience dealing with both individual and corporate clients and am able to understand their differing needs and objectives. I am always approachable and happy to assist.

Prior to joining Taylor Walton, I completed work experience placements at several leading corporate law firms and commercial barristers’ chambers in London.


I enjoy watching and playing football and tennis, and being outdoors.
