I am a solicitor at a rail and freight company called DB Cargo (UK) Ltd. I specialise in commercial and transport law.
I trained in private practice at DWF and now work in a much smaller UK team, but the company generally has a large international presence, with numerous legal teams spread over Europe and the Middle East. This assists me with recognising the challenges and difference in working environments that in-house junior lawyers experience.
I hope to help in-house lawyers develop the connections, networks and friendships with other lawyers, in both private practise and in-house. These are vital when developing a legal career.
During my time as a trainee I attended and enjoyed many events run by Leeds JLD and other in-house networking societies and general professional networking events. I also assisted with my own firms young professional networking events, having a place on the networking committee. I am really looking forward to the opportunity to organise future events.
