    I work as a paralegal in the employment and commercial law department, based in the Bicester office. My day-to-day work involves assisting the solicitor’s with receiving new enquires, providing support across the department and publishing legal blogs.

    I joined Brethertons in April 2019 after gradating from Oxford Brookes University, obtaining honours in commercial law. Whist studying I produced a research paper about the gig economy, and the implications this is having on the international employment landscape. I have a specific interest in financial transactions, technology and employment law. I have a passion for blogging and enjoy writing about current legal affairs.

    I have a keen interest in Horology and enjoy reading and learning about both modern and vintage Swiss watches. In my spare time I can usually be found in a coffee shop with my partner discussing our next travel adventure.

    Experience & accreditations:

    • 2015 – 2018 Oxford Brookes University LLB Commercial Law – Grade 2.1
    • Awarded the Oxford Brookes Law School Outstanding Contribution Award 2018
