Me in a minute

I was attracted by the intellectual rigour of being a lawyer

I graduated with a degree in English Literature and had a brief foray with the publishing world before joining Withers, so a career as a solicitor wasn’t obviously on the cards. But I was attracted by the intellectual rigour of being a lawyer, nowhere more demanding than in unravelling the complexities of tax law. It is this challenge combined with the close personal interaction with clients and their advisers that I love about my job.
