In this blog post we interview Beverley Flynn from Stevens & Bolton LLP. If you are squeamish, avoid the middle section involving dog food and the (intentional) human consumption of it. Not by Beverley though, I hasten to add. Don't say that I didn't warn you...
Who are you?
I studied law at King’s College London University and German Law at the University of Passau. I qualified at an international City law firm, Lovells, and I am currently a Commercial Partner at law firm Stevens & Bolton LLP where I advise a wide range of international and UK clients across a number of sectors.
You and the day job
How did you end up being a commercial lawyer?
I was fortunate having qualified at the height of an earlier recession in a city firm to be offered a number of roles there, including shipping and working within the commercial team. I chose commercial as I thought it would give me a wider range of options and experience and would not be geographically limiting. So far it's proved a good choice—over the years I have enjoyed a number of in-house secondments to major household name clients and travelled to businesses in places including Australia and Europe—so have enjoyed the best of both worlds.
What type of projects are you working on at the moment?
Many and varied! They currently include a large educational software agreement for a software company, landfill gas agreement on behalf of a renewable energy business and pharmaceutical agreements for a major pharmaceutical company.
Describe a memorable moment of your career. (You can interpret ‘memorable’ in whichever way you wish!)
