In my primary role as a Knowledge and Information Services Officer, I support all of the firm's legal teams with their research enquiries. My particular focus however, is on the Tax & Private Client and Intellectual Property departments. The Knowledge and Information Services team provide database training, company intelligence, current awareness and legal research assistance. Research is my passion, and it is fantastic to work in such a dynamic team!
As Sustainability Lead, I steer the firm's programme tackling the climate emergency. I manage environmental campaigns, partnerships (for example our relationship with Pawprint), projects (see Rooting for Change), our Sustainability Action Network and more. I won the Just Purpose Award in 2021 for my efforts in this space. Every individual and organisation has a responsibility to do the very best they can when it comes to the environment. This guiding principle drives my commitment to working with the international Fieldfisher community to get closer to this goal.
I have a BA in English Literature from Durham University and have worked in the Legal Information profession since my graduation. I started my legal information journey as the firm's Knowledge and Information Trainee and have since graduated that programme to become a fully qualified Information Officer. To add depth and breadth to my understanding of the legal sector I then completed the BIALL Legal Foundations course at the University of Westminster.
