Since joining Wright Hassall Penelope has been fortunate to work on a varied range of corporate matters, including:

  • Working as part of a team advising the sellers of a group which operates care homes and domiciliary care services;

Penelope joined the corporate team at Wright Hassall in 2021 after training at a top 50 firm in Birmingham and working at law firms in Coventry and Stratford upon Avon.


Outside of work she enjoys running, swimming, tennis and cycling - when she can fit these in around spending time with her two young children! They love exploring the outdoors together as a family and their favourite holidays are trips to Cornwall to go to the beach and swim in the sea (when it isn’t too cold!).

Penelope would love to travel to Iceland to see the Northern Lights – maybe one day!
