Alice Finlow studied the LLB at the University of Chester followed by the LPC with Masters part-time at the University of Law in Christleton, Chester.
Her role at Clarke Willmott so far has seen her assist on a number of Employment Tribunal cases concerning the employment status of freelancers, an area of law she will continue to focus on during her training contract.
Sarah Kett is training with the Clarke Willmott Intellectual Property team. Having studied the LLB course at Lancaster University and then the LLM (incorporating the LPC) at BPP University in Manchester, Sarah has worked on a variety of contentious and non-contentious IP matters already. Her experience includes cases in the High Court and IPEC (Intellectual Property Enterprise Court).
