I am an Associate Solicitor in Lodders’ Agriculture Department, and I advise clients on a broad range of agricultural matters. I specialise in all aspects of agricultural law.
What do you most enjoy about your job?
Ensuring the firm’s clients achieve a positive outcome to the matter in hand, and the sheer variety of work undertaken. Agriculture encompasses so many different areas of law.
What sort of clients do you work with?
Mainly farming individuals and families.
When did you start at Lodders? Any interesting past employers?
I’ve been with Lodders since October 2019. Prior to that, I worked for law firms based in North Yorkshire and Cumbria/The Lake District, but have recently returned to my home town of Cheltenham.
Have you always worked in the legal sector? If not, what did you do before?
Before qualifying as a lawyer, I was employed in the charity sector, including working for the Royal Geographical Society in London.
Are you a member of any societies, committees or organisations either at work or externally?
I am a member of Agricultural Law Association and also the CLA.
What gets you out of bed in the morning?
The opportunity to achieve positive outcomes for clients as quickly and as efficiently as possible.
Any interesting personal achievements?
I once worked in Antarctica on a climate-change project; I’ve walked the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, Peru; and I’ve cycled the length of both the Alps and the Pyrenees, as well as Land’s End – John O’Groats.
