What’s your experience in this area?

I have extensive experience of the different aspects of legal work and have experienced a range of Courts including the Employment Tribunal, First-Tier Tax Tribunal and the High Court.

I also worked as a paralegal in an international law firm on a multi-faceted reinsurance matter where I developed an interest in commercial disputes.

I was also a Legal Editor at FromCounsel, a publishing company that provides an online resource for corporate lawyers.
