Abby originally obtained a degree in French and Spanish, but during her undergraduate course she took part in the vacation scheme at Hay & Kilner. She enjoyed it so much she then came back two years later to do another work placement, which confirmed her commitment to pursue a career in law. Abby undertook the GDL and LPC at Northumbria University, during which time she worked as a paralegal in our Residential Property Unit. Abby then completed her training contract with the firm, undertaking seats in our Commercial Property, Clinical Negligence and Corporate Departments before joining the Corporate Team as a qualified solicitor in September 2019.
Abby assists and advises clients on a variety of transactional and commercial matters, including business sales & acquisitions, shareholder matters, contract reviews and data protection.
Outside of work, Abby is a keen triathlete and can usually be found pounding the pavements, spinning on her bike or at the pool. Abby is a run leader and chair of her local running club and particularly enjoys taking part in cross country because there is always cake at the finish line.
