I am a non-practising solicitor with 13 years' experience in Litigation and Dispute Resolution.  I have historically worked for international law firm Eversheds LLP and local firms Burnetts and Napthens LLP.  I have spent time working 'in-house' with the Department of Health's Central Contract Management Unit in London.

My main area of expertise is Litigation and Alternative Dispute Resolution.  Within that area of law I specialise in contractual and property related disputes.

My route into law was non-traditional.  I completed an MA(hons) at Edinburgh University in Social Anthropology.  I then completed the Postgraduate Legal Diploma and the Legal Practice Course at the College of Law (now the University of Law) in York.

I trained in Bristol before moving back north again upon qualification.
