More about Nathan

What was your first job?

My first proper job was working on the fish counter at Waitrose (the smell did linger somewhat…) but my first job in law was as a court logger at Northampton Crown Court, which I loved. I had to keep a log of everything that happened during all the proceedings and got to observe some fantastic advocates and barristers. It sparked my passion for criminal law and set me on my path to becoming a lawyer.

If you weren’t a lawyer or in your current profession, what would you be doing?

My dream would be to work with big cats (lions predominately) in Africa but the reality is probably something either to do with sport or a teacher.
