Jessica Lawson

Jessica is a Solicitor in our Corporate & Commercial team since September 2019.

Prior to joining Capital, Jessica worked at Swansea University’s in-house Legal Services team for three years (2016-2019). She started there as a paralegal for six months, before completing her training contract in October 2018 and working as a Junior Legal Advisor.

During her time at Swansea University, Jessica gained experience in many areas of law, Commercial being her favourite. She dealt with a vast range of commercial contracts, advising the University’s staff, both national and international universities, and external organisations.

Before embarking on her career as a Solicitor, Jessica studied her undergraduate Law LLB degree at the University of Exeter (2012-2015) and then moved back home to Swansea to study her LPC (2015-2016).
