In their words
"What I enjoy about my job is what first attracted me to the profession from my studies in chemistry: solving problems. I have always enjoyed seeking to find a creative solution for clients, be that resolving litigation under the most favourable terms, or ensuring that legislation does not stop a commercial objective such as a purchase or sale of a business (especially in an insolvency scenario). To achieve these solutions, I always seek to understand the client's business and exactly what they are trying to achieve and then, with the client, seek to work out a range of options which assesses the risk and gives the client a path towards what they are looking to achieve. Given the nature of Employment Law, and employees as individuals, this often requires a fair degree of pragmatism!"
