Jess has spent the past 4 years practising in the commercial sector, with a specialist focus in Intellectual Property.

She has recently ventured north from Hamilton to join Wilson McKay with the aim of transferring those skills into her practise area of Civil and Commercial Litigation.

She has a breadth of knowledge and experience in relation to commercial contracts, transactions and dealings, which she considers will bring a thorough and well-rounded approach to her style as a litigator.

This has equipped her to be able to advise and advocate for people who are having horse related problems, regardless of the applicable area of law. Her recent appointment as President of the Future of Racing group has also allowed her to advise and collaborate with other large industry bodies as the voice of younger people in Horse Racing.
