What are the values that drive you or /and what do you enjoy about the work you do?

I enjoy the challenge that comes from working within a complex area of law such as Intellectual Property. I particularly enjoy litigation work, having had prior litigation experience in my previous role dealing with claims on both the Small Claim Track and Fast Track.

Most likely to: Not wash my dishes.

Random fact: I can solve a Rubik’s cube (without taking the stickers off).
