What would be your advice for anyone wanting a career like you? 

Do your research and really try to understand what is involved.  There are so many options when it comes to a career in law, which can be both a good and bad thing; good because it allows for choice and variety but bad because it can be difficult to work out what it is you want to do.  A lot of people seem to go into a career in law because they’re not really sure what they want to do but if you find something that interests you and you care about it, it’s incredibly rewarding.

What’s your favourite thing about working within Iconix brands? 

The variety and daily challenges.
