The Non-Contentious Lawyer

Working in the legal profession for over 30 years in multiple roles gives me a unique insight into all aspects of non-contentious legal work.
Qualifying as a solicitor in 1984 was only the beginning of a diverse career which has included qualifying as a notary public in 1991; holding the office of clerk to the general commissioner of income tax for 10 years; receiving a masters degree covering welfare law, public and international law and the renewable obligations in the electricity industry; teaching notarial practice at the University of Cambridge and at University College, London (UCL). In recent years my work migrated towards the specialist areas of corporate and non-for profit structures and governance, leading me to qualify as a chartered company secretary.

In November 2017 I made a significant change to my career and now work for DLA Piper in Leeds, working with a team of lawyers acting for national clients with large property portfolios.

I maintain my notary practise in Barnsley and I am best reached by email on notary@alliott.co.uk or by text on 07757 997 927
