Manager - Regulatory and Commercial Disputes | PwC
- State School Educated
- First generation lawyer
- Supporter of Other Diversity Organisations
I am a Manager at PwC based in the Commercial and Regulatory disputes team in London. I trained and qualified with Norton Rose Fulbright LLP in February 2013, moving to PwC in August 2017. Having volunteered as a Professional Ambassador previously, I have since worked with PwC’s Pro-Bono and Skills Based Volunteering Unit to assist colleagues across PwC’s Legal network in volunteering for Aspiring Solicitors.
I attended my local comprehensive school, going on to study Law at Durham University and was the elected President of the Law Society in my final year. As a student I volunteered at my local Citizens Advice Bureau and at high street law firms prior to securing vacation schemes with city firms.
For me, diversity in the legal profession is about widening access to the most able, without judging a person on their ethnic/social background or connections. Diversity produces a wider talent pool which can achieve a more effective, dynamic and ultimately successful workforce. Through working with Aspiring Solicitors I hope to provide practical careers advice and encouragement to assist students in making the most of opportunities available.
