“After researching the firm and speaking with the Directors, it became clear that the lawyers at Bell Lax were friendly and approachable, but a powerful and effective legal team. I joined Bell Lax because I wanted to be trained by litigation specialists.”
I could not have selected a better company. Straight to the point, informed every step of the way with a positive result. Thank you.
Mr Paul Broom - Dudley
George read Law with French at Bangor University. This included a year studying French Law at the University of Toulouse. He graduated from Bangor in 2015 with a First Class Honours Degree. He studied the Legal Practice Course at BPP Law School in Birmingham, obtaining a Distinction.
From the outset of his LPC, George was keen to join a specialist litigation firm. The varied and challenging work of dispute resolution appealed to him and he went on to study Advanced Commercial Litigation, Family, and Personal Injury Law.
In June 2016, George joined Bell Lax as a Litigation Support Lawyer, working in the firm’s commercial litigation department and assisting senior lawyers on a range of cases including breach of contract, debt recovery and professional negligence claims.
George has developed a particular interest in contentious probate cases, and has assisted senior lawyers in negotiating high value settlements on behalf of clients. George enjoys the satisfaction of assisting clients in what can often be emotionally charged circumstances and is committed to developing his skills in this area.
George also acts on behalf of landlords in order to obtain possession of their properties. He acts for clients to evict tenants who refuse to pay rent or are in breach of other lease conditions. He is able to provide advice on the appropriate procedure to use to evict tenants and has attended numerous court hearings, appearing on behalf of landlords.
In a recent and interesting case, George obtained a court order to enforce a Final Decision of the Financial Ombudsman. This is an unusual application to make with various hurdles to overcome and George successfully obtained a court order on behalf of our clients.
The Litigation Support Lawyer role at Bell Lax is intended to be a stepping stone to a training contract with Bell Lax. Through working as a Litigation Support Lawyer, George will further develop his skills and confidence as a litigator. He is committed to keeping up to date on legal developments and networking across the profession, and is a member of the Lawyers' Christian Fellowship.
Outside work, George enjoys keeping fit and the great outdoors. He got married shortly before joining Bell Lax.
