About Miriam Lowry

Formerly from Hertfordshire, Miriam moved to Nottingham in 2012 to study History with Contemporary Chinese Studies at the University of Nottingham. During her studies, Miriam spent a year in Ningbo, China on their overseas campus. Following her undergraduate degree, Miriam studied at Nottingham Law School completing the GDL followed by the LLM Legal Practice Certificate. Throughout this time, Miriam volunteered in the Nottingham Legal Advice Centre carrying out pro-bono work.

Simon Hale, commercial property Director comments, ‘Attracting and developing young talent is vital to the future of legal firms. As a growing organisation, we recognise the significance of investing in trainee solicitors. Several of our Directors  previously trained with the firm (including myself!). We are delighted to welcome Miriam to the team.’

Miriam says, ‘I have always wanted to pursue a career in law. Working at Ellis-Fermor & Negus is a fantastic opportunity to learn and develop professionally. The comparatively smaller size allows one-to-one dedicated support, with an ‘open door’ approach, which is really helpful. It’s great to have finally started the final phase of training and I look forward to getting into the swing of office life!’
