I joined Lewis Silkin in April 2018 as a Paralegal in the Employment department, having previously completed a Business and Economics degree in 2015.
In September 2017 I began studying the GDL part-time at the University of Law (Bloomsbury, London).
Having lived and worked in London since graduating in 2015, I have now returned to my hometown in South Wales in order to commence my career with Lewis Silkin, whilst continuing to travel to London to continue my studies.
I provide assistance to other EIR fee earners, including the Rockhopper team, in all aspects of Employment Law. My tasks include proof-reading, bundling, liaising with Chambers, coordinating billing, conducting research and drafting letters.
Prior to working at Lewis Silkin, employment law had been an area I had become increasingly interested in.
- I completed my FRU (Free Representation Unit) training in order to allow me to be an advocate at employment tribunals, preparing cases for clients and representing them in court, which will.
- As part of a pro bono scheme, I worked at an employment telephone advice clinic, liaising with employees, researching the law and providing advice to assist in their various employee/employer issues.
- I had attended the Supreme Court, following the Pimlico Plumbers case regarding ‘worker’ status to further my understanding in the area.
Aside from working and studying you’ll find me watching or playing football, running or at the theatre.
