Brought up in the North East and educated in the West Country, I moved to the East Midlands as an undergraduate. I have developed a real love for the area. Its vibrant legal scene offered a great place to begin a career - the next thing was to find the ‘right’ firm for me…
The idea of working at a small, high-street firm was not appealing, nor did I want to be at a firm where I would spend my days (and nights) at a photocopier! I wanted somewhere with real commercial depth and with the best, most varied training available. I began my training contract with Roythornes in September 2011 and qualified in 2013.
I have been struck by the variety of work that has landed on my desk, from spending a week in the Royal Courts of Justice to working on complex, large-scale development transactions. And, more to the point, I felt like a valued member of the firm, and not “just a trainee”.
