Carey Willis Fleming, Associate Solicitor, Employment

What motivated you to become a lawyer? 

When I was much younger, I visited a solicitor’s office with a family member (not Thrings, may I add) and I recall the solicitor speaking in almost unintelligible “legalese”. I resolved to become a solicitor who would simply “said it as it is”. It goes without saying that all solicitors are specialists in the law and could all spout never-ending jargon but clients need us to translate the legalese and give clear practical legal advice that is easy to understand and follow.

Why do you specialise in employment law?

For most of us, time spent at work takes up a large part of our time and energy and what happens at work can have a real impact on us both professionally and personally. Whether the client is an employer or an employee, I am ultimately dealing with people and I’m a people person at heart and get satisfaction from helping people to find solutions to their problems. When dealing with people, every individual is different, and no two situations are the same. That, together with the ever-changing landscape of employment law, keeps my work varied and engaging.

What do you like to do outside of work? 

Watching live performances (especially musicals and stand-up comedy). I also enjoy kickboxing and socialising with friends and family.
