Danielle currently works as a solicitor in the Commercial Dispute Resolution team based in Manchester.

Since joining Gateley as a trainee solicitor in 2021, she has qualified into commercial disputes and assists senior fee earners, including partners, with a wide range of disputes, including:

  • breach of contract
  • business ownership disputes
  • shareholder disputes 
  • commercial contracts
  • technology disputes
  • debt recovery
  • contentious probate.

Danielle’s experience to date includes assisting in mediations that resulted in successfully settling two high-value claims. 

She also assisted a senior fee earner in a nine-week trial concerning a family dispute over ownership and control of several businesses.

In addition to her work at Gateley, Danielle co-founded AskTrainees in January 2022 to help aspiring solicitors with applications and to gain an insight into life as a trainee solicitor.
