Benjamin Molyneux

Paralegal

I joined the Dispute Resolution team in November 2021 as a Paralegal. I am based in our Colchester office, and am available on 01206 217606.

My aim is to provide clear and concise advice that deals with clients’ work in a timely and effective manner, no more so than when a client instructs me with regard to recovering a debt. This sometimes involves negotiating settlement agreements at the pre-action stage or it could mean taking necessary steps to issue legal proceedings and enforce Judgement. I also work closely with the firm's own debt recovery department to ensure any debts in the firm are monitored and recovered.

No one wants to be owed money, and for some people it can lead to an extremely difficult situation. I enjoy being able to offer support and assist people in challenging circumstances and I find it very rewarding when my clients see their debt recovered.

I am a recent graduate from the University of Law, having completed the Legal Practice Course combined with a Masters in Law and Business; I was awarded Distinction in both. I also graduated from the University of Reading where I was awarded an Upper Second Class with Honours in Bachelor of Laws (LLB)

I enjoy getting involved and putting myself forward for new challenges and opportunities. In the final year of my Law Degree I won regional and national CEDR (Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution) Student Negotiation Competitions in London, whilst finishing second place in client interview and mooting competitions. In my spare time I like to play football, tennis and squash. I completed the Great North Run in 2019, raising money for a great charitable cause in the process. I’m also a keen spectator of a wide range of sports; I have a season ticket at Wolverhampton Wanderers FC and love to go to Molineux Stadium and support my team!
