Matthew joined us in spring 2017 as a trainee solicitor, having obtained degrees in international politics (Aberystwyth) and human rights, focussing on public law (LSE). He worked as a litigation paralegal at two City firms whilst studying law, dealing with complex, high-value cases. He recently completed a two-year term on the Law Society Council as elected representative for trainee solicitors and law students. During this time he also served on the Society’s Regulatory Affairs Board and the Executive Committee of the Junior Lawyers Division of England and Wales.
When time zones permit, Matthew undertakes the thankless task of supporting his hometown Toronto Maple Leafs. He enjoys running and squash now that he is too fragile for the contact sports of his glory days.
