I'm a solicitor specialising in business law and brand protection. I'm super passionate about making a difference within the world of legal with crystal clear advice and helping tech SMEs and entrepreneurs grow thriving, flourishing businesses in the safest, best way possible.

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO GO INTO DIGITAL & TECH?

Although I don't work 'directly' in the tech industry, those in this sphere make up the majority of our clients at Jamieson Law which I absolutely Iove. The tech environment is fast paced containing the most cool and innovative businesses. I am passionate about building relationships so they can thrive.

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO GIRLS THINKING ABOUT A CAREER IN DIGITAL AND TECH?

Absolutely go for it, and don't let fear of the unknown drive you away from your goals. I've been there, it can feel very overwhelming. The tech world needs innovative, amazing women to dive into new depths. Remember you aren’t alone; a support network is crucial!
