"I am a solicitor apprentice in the corporate law team at Higgs. I have over 5 years experience working in corporate departments in both national and regional law firms.”

After opting against the traditional university route, I started my legal career as an administrator in a corporate law department in early 2019.

I was shortly after promoted to paralegal and began to undertake the apprenticeship route towards qualification as a solicitor in 2020. I am undertaking the SQE route to qualification as a solicitor and will qualify in 2027.

I have a large breadth of experience working on corporate transactions, ranging between small scale sales, up to multi-million pound acquisitions.

  • Advising and assisting on the sales and acquisitions of multiple care home franchises.
  • Advising an energy company on multiple sales of their subsidiary companies.
