About Lee

I began my traineeship with B+M in August 2017, after joining the firm as an office assistant during the summer of the same year.

I completed my LLB at the University of Strathclyde in 2015, having been heavily involved with the University and its many projects and societies. The pinnacle of my involvement being my work as Co-Founder and Chief Editor of the Strathclyde Law Review: a self sufficient legal publication with articles from students as well as top academics and practitioners. The Review is now in its 4th year and I am happy to see that it's growing from strength to strength. 

Outside of work, you are likely to find me on a tennis court; being disappointed by Arsenal; or if I am very lucky - enjoying a trip to Canada which I travel to as much as possible. 

Specialist area

In February 2018, I joined Iain Nicol’s litigation team. My current role is to assist him with his wide-ranging personal injury and medical negligence litigation caseload. I look forward to being able to help clients through potentially challenging and emotional periods in their lives in order to achieve a good result for them.

In my first 6 months, I was based in the busy commercial team where I assisted with commercial property, corporate and charity transactions.
