White Collar Crime To White Collar Corporate Law

Pepperells are delighted to be celebrating new female additions to their Corporate Law team, in what the firm has noticed, is a growing trend of women embarking on careers within the Corporate and Commercial legal departments.

Amy Hutton joined Pepperells Corporate Law Team in January 2022 for the final year of her training contract after a successful 16 months working as a Criminal Defense Paralegal and then Trainee. She qualified as a Solicitor in September 2022.

Amy told us “I always knew that i wanted to have a career in law, and this was affirmed when I completed my LPC LLM in 2019/2020 and I really enjoyed the Litigation and Commercial elements of my Masters degree at Law School”

“I joined Pepperells in August 2020 and went into the Criminal Department and quickly discovered that I loved the team spirit and culture within the firm. I was delighted to accept a training contract to commence in December 2020. I had the opportunity to spend the remaining 12 months of my Training Contract within the Corporate Law team to build on the knowledge that I learned during my LPC and I knew that this is where I wanted to be once I’d qualified as a Solicitor.”

“I have now qualified and most enjoy supporting clients with their transactional work for Mergers and Acquisitions; acting for both Sellers and Buyers, supporting businesses to grow or expand and preparing plans for restructure along with Shareholder Agreements and Commercial Contracts.

“I am most looking forward to building my own network and client base and working together with the wider team to achieve the best results for our clients.”

Pepperells have a well established team of Corporate and Commercial Law experts, supporting clients from across the UK with their business needs.
