Company Commercial and Litigation

I joined OGR Stock Denton in 2017 as a Paralegal in the Company Commercial and Litigation department, having previously gained experience at a large law firm in South Wales.

Since joining OGR Stock Denton, I have gained a wide variety of experience in matters across Company and Commercial and Litigation.

My Company Commercial experience includes preparing ancillary documents for transactions, working directly with clients, undertaking due diligence in mergers & acquisitions and drafting terms and conditions for SME businesses.

Additionally, I have experience of amending policies in order to ensure they are compliant with GDPR.

My litigation experience includes personal injury matters, attending court to represent clients at infant approval hearings and presenting proposed compensation figures to ensure the best possible outcomes for our clients.

Away from the office I enjoy travelling and watching sports, with a particular interest in Olympic Sports.

I am an avid gym-goer and like to take part in outdoor sports.
