Eleanor began her pursuit of a legal career in 2011, embarking on her training contract in Somerset in 2015.

She qualified as a solicitor in 2017, since which time she has built upon an initial foundation of corporate knowledge and civil litigation in developing specific and contemporary skills in Court of Protection work and mental capacity matters.
Eleanor’s extensive and varied pre-legal work experience in the criminal justice, mental health and education systems has given her a strong foundation of interpersonal skills and a deep sense of professionalism, making her a trusted and approachable adviser. 
Since January 2019, Eleanor has worked as a solicitor within the Mental Capacity Team at Butler & Co. There, she assists the Team in their ongoing professional development by facilitating regular case law discussions and providing supervisory support.  
In her practice, Eleanor is adept at working collaboratively and in developing a good rapport with clients and referrers alike. Eleanor thrives on promoting vulnerable clients’ access to justice and has worked both pre- and post-qualification on a wide range of litigious matters. This has furthered a specific interest in supporting clients for whom contentious family disputes are a live issue. 
Eleanor’s involvement in recent cases includes close consideration of the contemporary and pertinent legal issues presented by the Covid-19 pandemic (e.g. vaccinations and family contact).  
Eleanor receives instructions from the Official Solicitor, Independent Mental Capacity Advocates, family members and patients themselves. She prides herself on dealing sensitively with cases which can be contentious and involve multiple parties, some of whom may be unrepresented.
Eleanor’s tenacious attitude, keen eye for detail and solution-focused approach complement our experienced Court of Protection team.
Outside of work, Eleanor has a keen interest in music, literature, photography and writing.  
She is also fond of the beautiful countryside surrounding us in the South West and regularly enjoys exploring the great outdoors with her young family.
