Knight joins MJM’s dispute resolution team

A former Customs officer has a new duty — with law firm MJM.

Jordan Knight, who left HM Customs to study law in England, has signed up with the firm's dispute resolution team as an associate after serving part of his pupillage at MJM.

Alan Dunch, director at MJM and head of the dispute resolution group, said: “During the last months of his pupillage which he spent with us, he demonstrated that he is an extraordinarily bright and talented young man.

“He has the makings of a capable and articulate advocate and at this early stage of his career he has already demonstrated a sound ability to research the issues, assemble his thoughts and put together cohesive arguments in support of the positions that he wishes to advance on behalf of clients.

“I am confident that he has a bright future ahead of him at the Bar and he will prove a worthy adversary in the years to come.”

Mr Knight earned an LLB at the University of Kent in the UK and took his postgraduate diploma in legal practice at the University of Law in London.

He is an associate member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators and provides pro bono legal advice at the Legal Advice Centre.

He works in civil and commercial litigation and advises on a range of legal matters, including employment, customs & immigration, property disputes, personal injury, debt collection and mortgage enforcement.

He also has experience appearing before the Tax Appeal Tribunal and the Employment Tribunal.

Before becoming a lawyer, he worked in Customs' policy unit.

He completed seven months of his pupillage at the Attorney General's Chambers before doing the final five months at MJM.
