What Nathan says:

Outside of work, I enjoy keeping active and I am a keen badminton player having played now for some 10 years for a local club. I also train in martial arts and take part in various self-defence seminars and grading events.  

Outside of the office you will probably find me at Priestfield Stadium watching Gillingham FC or frequenting local coffee shops and spending time with friends and family.

If I were not a lawyer, I would be….

If I were not a lawyer I would probably be a pilot. I recently had my first flying lesson which was great fun.

If I were stranded on a desert island and could take 3 pieces of music (or books) with me they would be…

For books I would take ‘Great Expectations’, the novel by Charles Dickens, and ‘Man’s Search for Meaning’ by Viktor Frankl and for music I would take Bob Marley’s ‘Legend’ album.
