LlB (hons) Exon, Former Solicitor
University of Cambridge Certificate of English Language Training to Adults

I practised as a solicitor for over 20 years before moving into training full time in 2002. I then found my niche, combining my legal skills with my love of communication and language.

I’ve worked both in private practice, and for many years as an in-house lawyer in England and abroad where I was both client and lawyer. My business experience has included helping run a family business, running my own small legal practice, and managing Axia Training since I set it up in 2003.

My 20 years as a solicitor

I started and ended in private practice. In between, I spent many years as an in-house lawyer in diverse organisations, as Legal Analyst at The Cyprus Development Bank, Legal Advisor and Company Secretary at Amoco U.K. Limited, and (for 10 years) Senior Solicitor at The Rank Group (then a multinational FTSE 100 group).

My work included M&A, commercial contracts, gaming, managing major US and UK litigation, dealing with loan & security documentation, and special projects.

My love of languages

I’m just about bi-lingual in English and Greek (with English coming first, of course). And although I’m a bit rusty now, I’ve learnt Latin, Ancient Greek, French and Italian to a high standard. I’ve promised myself that when I retire, I’ll spend much of my time revisiting my languages and learning new ones.
