Up next, is Charlotte Morris, senior solicitor at ESP Law who loves nothing more than a colleague who can make her laugh. Did we mention she is a soon-to-be-qualified welder too?
Every member of the legal team is extremely experienced and knowledgeable, and each has their own areas of expertise. To give just a few examples, Jessica English is a fantastic tactician especially when it comes to very challenging employees who are likely to become litigious, Charlotte Ashton has great depth of knowledge and experience in immigration and Nina Robinson is a fellow TUPE geek!
As a collective, we have some insightful discussions and debates around complex and unusual legal queries. While we may not share the same opinions or perspectives, everyone’s views are well-reasoned and valued and it is great to consider different perspectives on matters in order to ensure we provide the best and most-reasoned advice to our customers while accurately conveying any potential risks.
I would not say anything… if I saw an alien, I would run as fast possible in the opposite direction!
It would have to be my job-share, Jessica English for putting up with me for so many years! She is always supportive and is one of the few people that can make me smile before my morning coffee has kicked in!
It is hard to pinpoint a specific memory, but I love Charlotte Ashton’s quick wit and intensely dark sense of humour. She has great one-liners which never fail to make me chuckle – even during my rather dismal attempts at home schooling!
Customers – I love getting to know people and understanding how they like to operate, plus, some of the issues that arise never cease to amaze me!
I was torn between law and medicine when considering options for university. During my training contract I quickly discovered I made the right choice – as I realised I couldn’t even read about medical procedures without feeling nauseous and faint!
What I would give for a crystal ball… naturally, our recent acquisition by Marlowe plc, means there will inevitably be some changes ahead. But, given our reputation and performance to-date I believe esphr’s position in the market and relationship with customers – both new and existing – will be further solidified.
I’m currently learning how to weld!
Assuming I still live with my husband and kids, I would have to say a childminder, a chef, a cleaner and a hairdresser – for obvious reasons!
Freddie Flintoff and Nigel Owens as I think they are both hilarious and would undoubtedly have some funny stories to tell. Kamala Harris – an incredibly inspiring woman, and I would love to hear first-hand about some of her experiences. Also, Dolly Parton – I just think she is amazing – and Rick Stein… in the hope that he may cook!
