Following my law degree, I studied for one year at Northumbria University and passed the legal practice course with a distinction. From there I completed a two year training contract at Sintons Solicitors in Newcastle and was admitted onto the roll of solicitors in September 2016.

I now work in the corporate legal team at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Manchester advising on a variety of corporate transactions, reorganisations, mergers and acquisitions.
