Journey to law
While I was at university, I worked as a paralegal for a firm in its litigation department. I loved the fast-paced nature of the work and the great feeling I had when I got a positive outcome for a client. As an employment lawyer I have not been disappointed with my career choice. Every day is different, I am regularly challenged by the constant changes in employment legislation and I get enormous satisfaction from helping individuals and businesses solve issues in the workplace

I was inspired at the start of my legal career to specialise in employment law when I helped a young woman succeed in a sex discrimination and harassment claim. Despite nearly giving up her case on several occasions she stuck with it which took great courage. I will never forget the look on her face of complete relief, elation and joy when the tribunal gave unanimous judgement in her favour. I knew in that moment that as an employment lawyer I would be able to make a difference to the businesses and lives of my clients that I would work for.
I wanted to work in a truly specialist, energetic and entrepreneurial environment, with smart, enthusiastic, fun lawyers who share the same values and working ethos that I do. Jones Chase ticked all the boxes on my wish list and more.
It’s a firm that genuinely cares about doing a really good job and making a difference for its clients. It’s a firm that believes in challenging the norm.
Solving problems, finding solutions and working with enthusiastic, energetic people.
