Originally from York, Zoe studied History at Newcastle University before completing the GDL and LPC courses at Northumbria University. By then she already knew that she wanted to establish a career for herself in Newcastle and felt that Muckle stood out from other law firms because of its reputation in terms of the quality of the commercial work undertaken, and the friendly ethos it embodied.
A history graduate, Zoe started her training contract with the Firm in September 2011, doing seats in Banking, Real Estate, Employment and Corporate. Having qualified into the Banking Team in September 2013, Zoe assists by acting for a range of national banks, corporate borrowers and individual borrowers on all aspects of finance and security, including new lending, refinancing, restructuring and enforcement of security.
She says she really enjoys working at Muckle as she really feels part of a team, working towards a goal on an individual, team and Firm level. Zoe also believes that the Firm has a fantastic social and community spirit which encourages everyone to get involved and support all charity, community and social events. Zoe is an active member of Muckle Runners and has recently completed the Great North Run for the third time.
