It has been a steep learning curve for me since I joined the firm as I have already taken on a considerable case load which I am looking forward to continuing with and developing now that I am qualified. It is great to be working with such enthusiastic and supportive colleagues and to be back in Kent.”
Fairweathers CEO, Nick Fairweather, commented:-
