Solicitor


Career & Experience

Lisa is a solicitor in our Commercial team. She assists with drafting and negotiating a wide range of commercial contracts and providing support to in-house legal teams.

During her training contract at the firm, Lisa was a ‘virtual trainee’ to a large national charity, assisting both their legal and their legacies team with a broad range of work. As a newly qualified solicitor she undertook a part-time secondment to a client in the travel sector, working collaboratively with their sole GC. Both these experiences have given Lisa a valuable insight into the challenges faced by in-house lawyers, and she has become adept at tailoring her advice and communication style to different business environments.  Lisa is particularly keen to advise clients in the charities and arts sectors as these are areas which she is passionate about.

Lisa loves the great outdoors and spends her free time hiking, cycling and learning to surf. As a quarter-Swede, she enjoys all things ‘Scandi’ including competing against friends and family in the garden game ‘Kubb’.
