Why did you become a lawyer? As a child I always read the terms and conditions for free gifts on the back of cereal packets so I think I was always destined to become a lawyer.  Who has been the biggest influence on your career?My husband. We’ve been together since before university. He has kindly followed me around the country, from Birmingham to London, and gave up his job to become the primary carer for our children.  What’s your proudest professional moment?When I was told I would become a partner. It was something I’d never really envisaged. You get called up to speak to the senior partner – I remember the long walk to his office hoping it would be the right answer.
