More about Nick… 

What was your first job?

My first job was as an Assistant Groundsman. I wasn’t very good at it but, later in life, it sparked my interest in gardening-I now have a very beautiful garden.

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

If I wasn’t working as an Employment Lawyer I would be researching and writing about military aviation, especially during WWII. Probably shows that I’m still an Air Cadet at heart!
