Gavin developed an interest in business law during his studies. After earning his law degree with honours at Coventry University as a mature student, he gained valuable experience handling tribunal appeals. Gavin then transitioned to paralegal roles assisting with commercial contracts review, drafting agreements and performing legal research.


Outside work, Gavin enjoys getting his hands dirty with anything from car modification to PC building - he's always eager to learn something new and isn't afraid to get into the details. He likes staying active by taking spontaneous road trips to explore new places with friends. Gavin values downtime with family back home in Coventry, where he can recharge until his next adventure. Fuelled by curiosity, he's frequently signing up for challenges that push him out of his comfort zone.
