Sonum recently joined the legal and commercial team as a commercial lawyer.
Sonum started her legal career working in employment law at Weightmans LLP and then Pinsent Masons LLP in Birmingham before uprooting and moving to Newark to begin her training contract in-house at national company, Danwood. She worked on a variety of topics including employment, contract, disputes, regulatory and corporate matters and successfully completed her 2-year training contract to become a qualified solicitor in 2016.
On becoming a solicitor Sonum moved to NSK, a global Japanese manufacturer based in Newark where she worked as in-house assistant legal counsel, providing legal support to colleagues based all across Europe, covering many European jurisdictions and international customers/suppliers.
Sonum is married to Danny and they have a little boy, Jeevan (meaning “full of life”) who will be 2 in December. Sonum spends most of her spare time keeping Jeevan entertained by going for long walks at National Trust parks or spending time in playgrounds and soft play centres, but loves going out for a fancy meal, or to the cinema or theatre.
Welcome to the team, Sonum!
