My Route to Ellis Jones

I qualified as a solicitor in a City of London practice in 1996 before being headhunted by an award-winning firm on the south coast, becoming a partner in 2006. Notwithstanding a passion for Court work, I was looking for new challenges which led to my re-directing my skills to legal compliance. I joined the management team of Ellis Jones in 2015, helping to further develop the firm’s outstanding reputation for client service and innovation in the delivery of legal services on a national basis.
