I am pleased to say I am yet to have an uninteresting day at work

From a young age I was torn between a career in politics and a career in law (before realising the latter can, at times, incorporate both)… Since making that decision all those years ago, I have never looked back.

I have been fortunate enough to progress a wide variety of high profile matters during my career at Withers working for the most successful people in the world.

Being able to support such highly sophisticated and talented clients in a careful, commercial and time-effective manner is what drives me on a day-to-day basis and I am pleased to say I am yet to have an uninteresting day at work.
