Joining Girlings in June 2019, Nathan worked first as a Paralegal in our Corporate and Commercial team gaining experience in share and business acquisitions and disposals, business formation and incorporation, share buybacks, shareholders’ agreements and articles of association, and licence and franchise agreements.
His first seat as a Trainee Solicitor was with the Dispute Resolution team based in our Ashford office.
In 2014, Nathan graduated from the University of Kent with a 2:1 degree in Law. Whilst at University, Nathan participated in mooting and mediation competitions and he was a committee member of the Kent Law Clinic where he took part in initial client interviews and assisted with client matters in property and employment law. In 2016 he went on to study the Legal Practice Course (LPC) part time at BBP Law School, graduating in 2018 with a Commendation.

After graduating the LPC, Nathan was working as an in-house Paralegal for a large construction company where he had exposure to a wide array of legal issues. His work at this company developed his knowledge of commercial contracts and employment arrangements and confirmed his enthusiasm for helping others to achieve their strategic goals.
Prior to starting his career in law, Nathan worked for several years as a Consultant within the luxury jewellery and watch industry and was invited to take on the role as Cartier ambassador. His knowledge and expertise within the sector secured him a client base which included local celebrities.
