At the heart of our business are the people who make it function, a fantastic mix of individuals. We created this questionnaire to find out a bit more about their different interests and outlooks on life.

This month we asked Mandy Cockman from team Sunderland a few questions in order to get to know her a bit better.

Mandy has worked with us for the last seven years in the operations team at our Norfolk Street office and has more than 30 years’ experience working in the family departments of local solicitors.
