My Law Firm


I am an M&A / Private Equity associate at Kirkland & Ellis, having trained at Clifford Chance.

I went to state school up until GCSE and was fortunate to attend a private sixth form after being awarded a double scholarship. I then went on to study a Music undergraduate at King’s College London.

Initially I did not believe that it was possible to enter the profession with a background like mine. I began researching corporate firms during my second year of undergraduate but talked myself out of applying due to lack of confidence and not having any connections in the City. During my final year I applied for charity grants and scholarships to self-fund the GDL as I had decided corporate law was the career I wanted to pursue – the outcome very much determined whether I would be able to pursue the GDL. I was awarded a Dean of the Law School Scholarship from BPP Law School and a generous charity grant to fund most of my tuition and embarked on the training contract applications during the GDL year. During the GDL, I worked in Greggs part-time but had little formal legal work experience. I attended a Vacation Scheme at Clifford Chance in July 2019 and subsequently secured the training contract. I was daunted as this was the first time experiencing a professional environment in the City however overcoming various hurdles, juggling various non-law part-time jobs and having AS’ help to build connections in the City helped me navigate the vacation scheme. I am really keen to support others in the AS network who share similar experiences to those I had and will try my best to help.
