Senior Associate, Solicitor
I manage a team of experienced legal advisers in the legal advice department. My main area of expertise is employment law, having worked in this area throughout my career advising both commercial and personal clients.
I also have a keen interest in business immigration. I regularly provide external training to clients on employment matters. In addition, I supervise trainee solicitors and CILEX graduates that do a training seat within the legal advice department.
As a business development representative for DAS Law my responsibility is to maintain and build upon existing relationships with clients and business partners. My aim is to ensure that our clients get the most out of their legal expenses insurance cover as well as finding ways to provide alternative legal services to ensure exactly the right customer outcome is achieved.
I have built strong partnerships with the University of South Wales and the University of the West of England. I regularly attend law fairs, legal advice clinics and arrange work experience placements.
I am a regular contributor for legal updates on social media and have on occasion been been featured in discussions of legal matters on the radio.
Away from the law I have a busy family and social life, but I do try to fit in some running when I can. I regularly take part in local 10K and half marathons in South Wales and I am a member of a local running club. I also support my local scouting group, acting as their treasurer.
