My specialist area

As a Trainee Solicitor I have yet to qualify into any specialist area. Prior to my Training Contract I spent a year in the firm’s business development team, which gave me a first class insight into how a law firm works as a business.

During my Training Contract to date, I have completed seats in Commercial Property, Commercial Litigation/Employment, and Insolvency/Sports. I am currently enjoying my fourth seat in the Company department.

Highlights of my Training Contract so far have been advising on various passing off and trademark infringement claims, assigning several trademarks and domain names and advising on patent and trademark applications. I have equally enjoyed advising on both contentious and non-contentious Insolvency matters in relation to Bankruptcy proceedings, Individual Voluntary Arrangements and placing companies into Administration/Liquidation.

What it's like to work at George Davies

George Davies is a great place to work. The people here are friendly, approachable and there is a real team ethos. The firm is forward thinking, has a young outlook and prides itself on giving straight talking advice to its clients.

George Davies also encourages us to get involved in and organise charitable events for the firm’s nominated charities; Street League and Astley Park School. This year I organised and hosted a ladies’ event at Hobbs in Manchester, which attracted over 50 of our clients and contacts and raised in excess of £2,000 for our charities.

What I do when I'm not at work

Music and fashion play a big part in my non-working life. I love dancing to 60s RnB, Funk, Boogaloo and Rare Soul, but they have to be on original vinyl records! I’m a self confessed shopaholic and love collecting vintage clothes. I also enjoy going to the gym, running, travelling, painting and visiting art galleries.
