She trained with Edge and Ellison in London and Birmingham. On qualification she worked with Hammond Suddards. Both firms have since merged into Squire Patton Boggs. As a result, Suraiya gained the highest quality of training and work experience with some of the world’s leading lawyers. Suraiya went on to work with Harrison Clark (now Rickerbys). Suraiya has worked with both plc’s and owner managed companies . She is renowned for providing pragmatic solution orientated legal advice all encompassed with a high level of client care.

Wadsworths are perfectly positioned for growth in the commercial client arena and I am looking forward to advising existing and new clients and I am excited to be joining a competent and entrepreneurial team to contribute to this growth.
Harriet Muffett will be working alongside Chris Dingley, Head of Commercial Property as the department continues to get busier following its formation in early 2017.
