Lily commenced her pupillage in October 2022 and is currently supervised by Neil Griffin.

Prior to commencing pupillage, Lily worked as a Crown Court paralegal at leading firm ABV Solicitors. She managed her own caseload and secured acquittals in cases involving sexual offences, ABH, Harassment, burglary and witness intimidation. Further, Lily assisted partners and directors in a range of cases particularly focussing on allegations of murder, serious sexual offences, and drug conspiracy cases where the defence of modern slavery was raised or involving Encrochat evidence. Lily gained invaluable insight and knowledge of the entire criminal justice process from police investigation through to appeal and other post-conviction and acquittal matters. Further Lily has gained experience in civil and family matters including Misuse of Private information and Public Child law.

In her spare time, Lily is a keen member of the Inner Temple Drama Society, having directed and acted in a number of productions.
