Me in a minute

I've always wanted to be a lawyer although the reason I was so fascinated by the law was through watching criminal court dramas on tv.

I have steered clear of that particular field during my career, however.

My specific area of expertise requires both a detailed knowledge of the law but also strategic planning and most importantly, a key understanding of the commercial factors that drive business decisions. 

My time in-house has definitely aided my experience of the latter. Although I have lived in North London for a while, I am a West Ham fan and have had a season ticket for most of my life.
