Trainee Solicitor

About Steven

“A joy to work with and a real team player”

Graduating from Stirling University with a Bachelor of Arts in Law in 2012, then a Bachelor of Laws (Accelerated Graduate Entry) in 2014, Steven achieved a Diploma in Professional Legal Practice in 2015 from The University of Glasgow.

Steven joined Thompsons as a Trainee Solicitor in 2017, where he currently works within Thompsons’ award-winning Employment Team. Steven’s day to day workload consists of advising clients on the terms and effect of settlement agreements, drafting tribunal documents, and general assistance to other case handlers within the team.

Steven prides himself on his understanding that when making a claim, clients have rarely faced this type of complex legal jargon before, and provides straightforward tailored advice accordingly. Whether it’s a settlement agreement, employment tribunal, or court, Steven fully appreciates how daunting this can be for clients and goes out of his way to ensure they are as at ease as possible.

Prior to joining the Employment Team, Steven began his traineeship within Thompsons’ Road Traffic Accident Team. Having worked as a Paralegal before his traineeship within a firm specialising in complex cycling and motorcycling accidents, he found it highly motivating to both build upon existing skills and learning new ones. Skills such as negotiating with defenders, drafting court documents, and interpersonal skills such as advising clients who are unfamiliar with litigation, have proved invaluable going forward in his current role.
