Nina Holmes

Nina is a Trainee Solicitor in our Commercial Disputes team.

Nina graduated from the University of South Wales (USW) in 2018 with a first-class degree in Law and Legal Practice. Whilst at University, Nina was heavily involved in the USW pro bono Legal Advice Clinic, providing advice and support to individuals and businesses in areas of employment law and civil litigation.

During her training contract, Nina was seconded to the in-house legal team at The Royal Mint, working on a wide range of commercial agreements and intellectual property queries.

Nina currently spearheads Capital Law’s pro bono initiative, which allows trainees to engage with the pro bono community by providing guidance and support to students who volunteer at the USW Legal Advice Clinic.

Nina also supports and contributes towards Capital’s Welsh Law initiative, which promotes awareness of devolution and it’s impact on business in Wales.

“Nina spent around 8 months on trainee secondment with us at the Royal Mint and played an invaluable part in many key projects, certainly over and above what I would normally expect from a trainee solicitor. Nina is a pleasure to deal with and always approaches her work will enthusiasm and tenacity and a fine eye for detail. I would have no hesitation in instructing her on other commercial matters in the future.”
