"I really enjoy the work I do, particularly because it is so varied, which means that I am very driven to deliver the best service possible to our clients. My commercial and pragmatic approach to the work I do translates into a real commitment to getting the job done, whether it is contentious or non-contentious. My enthusiasm in this area led to me studying for the Certificate of Proficiency in Insolvency in my spare time, which means I have the ability to advise clients on points which are not solely “legal”, but also on practical aspects of matters."
