David has degrees in Microbiology and Biotechnology in addition to graduating from the University of Kent at Canterbury in 2010 with a first class degree in Law. Before training as a solicitor he spent more than 10 years as a research scientist in the pharmaceutical industry; working for Pfizer’s Bioprocess Development Group at Sandwich, Kent.
Following the announcement of the closure of the Pfizer manufacturing site he was selected by his colleagues to represent them during the redundancy process and therefore, somewhat unusually for an employment solicitor, has experience of large scale redundancy consultations from an employee’s perspective.
David’s experiences in representing his colleagues lead him to choose to retrain as a solicitor on leaving Pfizer in 2008 and following his graduation from the University of Kent he completed his Legal Practice Certificate at the College of Law, Guildford. David trained with Girlings and qualified into the Employment Department in September 2013.
