Construction & Engineering
After graduating from Northumbria University, Sophie worked for a large national law firm before taking an in-house counsel role at Stanley Black & Decker, the global tool manufacturer.
Sophie is experienced in reviewing, drafting and negotiating all kinds of commercial contracts as well as advising on disputes and defending employer and public liability claims. Sophie also has a good working knowledge of both private practice and in-house legal work, as well as a solid understanding of the sector, gained largely through her client-side days. It’s all invaluable experience that helps Sophie provides a top quality service to our clients.
Always on the go, Sophie’s not your typical lawyer. When she’s not walking (or being walked by) her big and beautiful Golden Shepherd dog, she’s busy running a cocktail bar she owns with her husband in Darlington. Experimenting with and sampling new creations is definitely a highlight.
