"I am a second-year trainee solicitor with previous experience in commercial property and commercial litigation. I currently sit in the commercial law department.”

I am a trainee solicitor currently in the commercial law department within business services.

I joined Higgs as a legal assistant in June 2022 before starting my training contract. I have completed commercial property and commercial litigation seats so far and I have an interest in contentious work.

I am a member of the Birmingham Trainee Solicitors Society, and I am social events manager for the trainees at Higgs. I also play netball in the BTSS league. I am also a member of the Wolverhampton and Black Country Junior Lawyers Division and a member of Higgs’ Green Committee.
