I am a Trainee Solicitor with experience in contentious and non-contentious construction matters. I started my construction law career as a paralegal in 2019 at a regional law firm and have never looked back! Prior to my years as a paralegal I completed my bachelor’s degree in English at the University of Nottingham.
Since starting my career in construction law I have worked on a wide range of disputes, ranging from assisting the partners on multi-million pound claims and high value adjudications to running lower value claims and adjudications myself. My experience covers other forms of dispute resolution too, such as assisting on mediations in order to settle construction disputes out of court. I have also worked on various debt recovery matters, many of which have arisen from construction contracts.
In addition to dispute resolution, I have experience in a range of non-contentious matters including negotiating and drafting appointments, collateral warranties and even contract reviews based on standard forms such as the JCT suite. In my previous role I worked alongside lawyers from other teams to help deliver the appropriate documentation for various transactions.
Alongside completing my training contract at Archor, I am studying law at the University of Law. I am preparing to sit each part of the Solicitors Qualifying Exam in the coming years.
