Motivation

What aspects of your job do you enjoy the most?

Intellectual and adversarial challenge, leading to positive outcomes for clients.

Why did you choose a career in the legal sector?

  • Although a proud Yorkie by birth, was equally proud to represent Lancashire in Golf at Boys and Colts levels
  • I have enjoyed and despaired at the few highs and many lows of supporting Blackburn Rovers FC for many decades
  • I was heavily involved in the administration of Blackburn Centurions Swimming Club and Gallica Swimming Squad (an elite swimming squad based in Lancashire) during my three children's competitive swimming careers
