The whole of my working career I have worked in the legal industry, started at the bottom and worked my way up including taking accountancy exams and becoming a qualified Accountant Technician. I have worked as a legal cashier, progressed to an Office manager, an Accounts Manager and then became a PA to Head of Finance & Operations. I joined the Court of Protection department here at Thomson Snell & Passmore in June 2021 and will be helping to prepare files to be costed by Cost Draftsmen, arranging billing of the files, reconciling accounts and undertaking various file management and admin tasks to support the team.
