Luke Donockley


4 years qualified

After graduating from Oxford University with a degree in English Literature and Language, Luke joined Thames Valley Police where he worked for seven years across a variety of roles. Two years as a detective working closely with solicitors helped Luke decide to return to the North to retrain, studying the GDL and LPC at Northumbria University.

Having qualified into the Commercial Team, Luke deals with a range of matters including reviewing and drafting terms and conditions and commercial contracts, advising on manufacturing, distribution and agency agreements, helping charity clients with governance matters and dealing with education-related issues, from academy conversions and transfers to support with commercial contracts and governance.

When he’s not in the office, Luke spends much of his time watching football and rugby and can often be found climbing in the Lake District at the weekend when not supporting his beloved Carlisle United.
