Hello, I started my journey with Cullimore Dutton in August 2007 as a Legal Cashier, joining the firm from Cheshire West and Chester Council, which was where my interest in legal finance began. At that time the firm was still known as Birch Cullimore, and I soon realised this was the place for me. Throughout my time here, I have always felt supported and encouraged to grow.

In 2016, I studied for and gained the Institute of Legal Finance and Management Diploma (ILFM(Dip)) with distinction, further enhancing my legal and financial knowledge, skills and expertise. Later that year I was thrilled to take on the role of Head Legal Cashier, a promotion which involved me joining the senior management team and which has allowed me to further contribute to the success and reputation of Cullimore Dutton.

I pride myself on having meticulous attention to detail which I believe is crucial to the handling of financial matters. As Head Legal Cashier, I take a great deal of pride in ensuring the financial operations of the firm are maintained with the highest level of accuracy, whilst being compliant with both the SRA and FCA Accounts rules.

When I’m not crunching numbers and keeping the cashflow in check, you can find me outdoors enjoying the simple pleasures of life; walking and cycling being my go-to activities to unwind.  Above all, I love spending time with my children and family which brings me the greatest joy and fulfilment.

Hello, my journey with Cullimore Dutton began in 1996 when I joined the firm from SP Manweb plc, as a legal secretary. The firm was then known as Birch Cullimore and I was eager to embrace new challenges in this legal environment.

In 2009, Birch Cullimore merged with Mason, Moore Dutton creating Cullimore Dutton.  Navigating through this merger was a testament to our firm’s resilience and commitment to providing seamless legal services to our clients.

In 2015, I was promoted to the position of Compliance Officer which has been a really fulfilling role and I take great pride in ensuring that our firm upholds the highest standards and adheres to all regulatory requirements.

In addition to my role as compliance officer, this year I was delighted to take on the role of Head of Business Administration, helping to develop the team to ensure excellent customer service throughout the client onboarding stage.

I believe it is important to strike a balance between work and leisure and I enjoy spending quality time with family and friends together with walking my dog.

I am delighted to be a part of the Cullimore Dutton family and consider myself very lucky to work alongside such talented professionals.  If you have any questions or need assistance, whether related to compliance matters or any other legal enquiries, I’m here to help.

Hello, I joined our firm’s predecessors, Birch Cullimore in 2003 having worked for an IT company who supported Birch Cullimore at that time. 

I started life at Birch Cullimore as an IT Support Analyst, then progressed on to become IT Manager. During this time Birch Cullimore merged with Mason & Moore Dutton to form Cullimore Dutton; I had the rather complicated task of merging the two IT systems. 

Over time I have taken on many more responsibilities leading to me taking on the role of Operations Manager and in February 2021 I was delighted to take on the role of Operations Director. 

Outside of work I am the number one taxi driver for my two teenage daughters, between lifts I enjoy walking with my dogs and getting photos and videos with my drone.

Hello, I joined Cullimore Dutton in 2014 from a background in finance and business development.  

During my time with Cullimore Dutton I have guided the firm through incorporation to become a limited company, established a strong and secure financial platform which has enabled us to grow and in 2021 began the next chapter of our firm’s proud history by appointing a new board of directors from within the business.  

I am proud of our culture of openness and transparency and the efforts we put into fostering the many great relationships we have with our wide and diverse client base across the region and beyond. 

I truly believe that every day our team changes our clients’ lives through their help, support, and expert advice alongside the exceptional levels of client service we are renowned for. 

When I break free from the office, I can be found playing taxi of dad to my three children or shouting Everton on at Goodison Park.
