Profile:

I studied Accountancy and Law at Manchester University (getting Government low income support while I was studying) (1994 graduate) and then the Legal Practice Course at Chester College of Law.   I am a first generation lawyer though lucky enough to have a wealth of support (the non financial actually meant more) from a brilliant family, and worked part time while I was studying to support myself. I trained in a High Street Practice in Bromley but moved to working in-house at what is now PWC as a benefits lawyer.  I then moved to a pensions niche practice (Sackers) in the City and then to the pensions team at Reed Smith, where I also worked as a fee earner on a part time basis. I joined Taylor Wessing in 2012 as a professional support lawyer (also part-time) in which I my role is to assist the team with ongoing legal developments and business development projects (including drafting articles). I sit on an external industry committee and I am also a volunteer at the Early Resolution Service of the Pensions Ombudsman. I feel passionately about diversity in the legal profession  – to make the most of talent it is important to support and celebrate excellence irrespective of colour, religion, background or indeed personal circumstances and to push the agenda to make this happen by providing the avenues and support by which aspirations can be properly fulfilled. I am a female, Asian lawyer and have faced many challenges in quite a long career including,  in more recent years, juggling family commitments whilst striving for the highest standards in my work. Diversity in the workplace enriches it by bringing wider perspectives to the table. I very much want to be a part of making that happen.
