I have a Master’s Degree in International Relations and International Law from the Freie Universität in Berlin. I completed a BA Hons Degree in History at Durham University after which I spent some time working in banking. I later completed my Common Professional Exam and Legal Practice Course by distance learning gaining a Distinction in the latter. I qualified as a solicitor in 1998. I have worked in the City, in two overseas jurisdictions (Australia and Singapore) before returning to work in Kent.
My roles have included fee-earning roles, but I have also worked as a Professional Support Lawyer and in Legal Project Management.
