What initially brought me into the Legal Sector? Watching Ali McBeal. Only joking - but shows my age! I thought I would be a good Lawyer. Finding solutions, being tenacious to get to an end result, persuasion and negotiating and working with people, were all skills I possessed which I believed I would be able to excel in. I also liked research and learning new things and knew that with Law, you would constantly be learning!Kimberley Barrett-St. Vall: Partner
