Private Client Team
Penelope (Penny) is an experienced solicitor, having qualified in 2005. Prior to entering the legal profession, she worked in Human Resources both in the public and private sector, as well as almost ten years as an administrator in a high street fashion chain.

We often meet our clients at their most stressful and distressing times in life, and Penny brings her past and professional experience to her work with our clients, offering a sensitive and personal approach to the advice and support she provides.
In her spare time Penny enjoys reading, gardening, walking, and watercolour painting.
