Connor joined the firm in February 2021. He is currently working in the Commercial Property department within our Gillingham office having completed his training contract and recently qualifying as a solicitor. 

What Connor says:

I studied law at the University of Surrey where I graduated in 2019. I enrolled on the Legal Practice Course with Masters at the University of Law shortly after on a full-time basis where I graduated in 2020 with a Distinction.

Since finishing my studies, I was working full time as an Electrical Labourer whilst applying for jobs roles in law. I joined Martin Tolhurst in February 2021 as an Office Administrator helping the team with a number of administrative duties in a very busy period with the Stamp Duty holiday. In June 2021, I was delighted to hear that Martin Tolhurst wanted to take me on as a trainee solicitor.

During my training contract, I gained extensive knowledge in Property Law by fee earning in residential conveyancing and then going onto assisting fee earners in Commercial Property and Property disputes with their work. I qualified as a Solicitor on 20th September 2023 and gladly accepted a position in the Commercial Property team at Martin Tolhurst as a full time Solicitor from 21st September 2023. 

Outside of work, I like to spend my time challenging myself through gym work and running. To assist with these physical activities, I have recently taken up yoga, which I have found to be a remarkable way to find peace at the end of a busy work day. I am very fond of traveling and experiencing different cultures. My next trip booked is a holiday in the sunshine state of Florida, which will involve a lot of rollercoasters and delicious food!

If I were not a lawyer….

I would be in a position which also is very challenging and impacts people in a positive way. I believe a teaching role in History would make a lot sense as it was a subject I really enjoyed and teaching in general is a very rewarding career.

If I were stranded on a desert island and could take three books with me…

I would take one very large book to use for fire, one book that showed me how to survive on a desert island and one book that showed me how to get off a desert island.
